Rolland Golden

Heritage , 1970
Acrylic on Canvas
34 x 42 in
A large, impactful, dreamy painting about Southern heritage and the passing of time and lives. Rolland Golden’s paintings are a fixture in Louisiana homes – quite often depicting roads, highways and fields that evoke a sort of quiet nostalgia. This beautiful painting is framed and ready to hang (and well under gallery prices). Dimensions given include frame.

From AskArt:
“Rolland Golden describes his paintings, created using a hard-edge watercolor technique, as abstract realism. His subjects are from his native state of Louisiana. Although Golden is in many ways a regionalist, he is not considered a sentimental painter. “Whether he paints a stretch of blacktop rising to meet the horizon, a deserted, weathered house or an imagined scene from the Civil War, Golden’s work is informed by a powerful sense of history.”(Dorfman)

Golden has participated in over 100 shows in galleries, museums and cultural centers throughout the United States.
