A very rare oil painting from the renowned American sculptor Cyrus Edwin Dallin (1861 - 1944). The cool palette and loose brushwork deftly depict the sense of movement and atmospheric qualities of this blustery, winter landscape. Measures: 18 x 24 in., and framed 26 ½ x 32 ½ in.
Dallin studied in Boston, MA with the sculptor Truman A. Bartlett, and continued his artistic education in Paris at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and Academie Julien under Henri Chapu, before returning to Boston to teach at the State Normal Art School. A generous contribution of one of his Paul Revere plaster casts to his hometown of Springville in 1902 lead to the early beginnings of the Springville Museums of Art collection. Among his many awards are a gold medal from the American Art Association of New York in 1888, a first class medal in 1893 from the Chicago Exposition, and a gold medal in 1904 at the St. Louis Exposition. In 1909 he received a gold medal from the Paris Salon.
