William Aiken Walker South Carolina (1838 -1921)
oil on board, framed, signed: lower left, WA Walker
sight size: H10 3/4" W5 3/4"

Provenance: Examined and reviewed by John Fowler and accompanied by letter available upon request.

Atlanta, Georgia collection.

Literature: For another example see Seibels, Cynthia: THE SUNNY SOUTH: THE LIFE AND ART OF WILLIAM AIKEN WALKER. Spartanburg, SC: Saraland Press, 1995, fig.103, p.197. This painting shows a similar scene at dusk.

Other Notes: Divergent from his typical Southern Cotton Picker and Cabin scenes, this painting is representative of the painting style Walker displayed later in life. He spent his winters in Florida and his summers in North Carolina, finding time to travel throughout the Southern States revisiting some of his favorite spots. As an old man he witnessed the changes to the landscape and character of these places brought on through modernization and industrialization. He found refuge in nature and painted small Naturalist scenes such as this as a way to reflect upon the inherent beauty of the land.

  • Very good original condition. No evidence of restoration, UV examination is clean.
