Regular price $450
Watercolor, circa 1900, 6-1/4 x 11-1/4, fading to the blue sky and foreground fields, matburn to edges from an old acidic mat, signed lower right in pencil, an abandoned watercolor landscape verso. Born in Maine, Ben Foster was a well respected Tonalist painter who came to art late at age 30 studying at the Art Student's league then in Paris in 1876=7. He longed for New England though, and settled in Cornwall Hollow, CT, where most of his landscape subjects were found, usually painted in muted autumnal earth tones as seen here.
