Impressionist "Country Road", Mid-20th Century
15.50 x 13.50 in
A lovely Impressionist scene of a country road by Royal Academy-trained British painter John Clymer. If you look closely at the impasto brush strokes, you will see the masterful mixing of colors originally engineered by the Impressionists to give the "impression" of the effects of light. The painting itself is 10" x 8", but it comes in an elaborate gilded wood frame that give it more presence at 15" x 13". You might want to look at my other listing by Clymer, which is a fine match for this one - the two together would look great, and in fact I believe they were probably hanging together with the original owner. From AskArt: "Clymer was born in Brighton, England in 1932. He was trained at the Royal Academy. In recent years, he has become recognized in England, the Continent and the USA for his skill in creating impressionist landscapes and coastal scenes."
