The Dead Artists Gallery presents “The Swami with the Wandering Eye”


 Unsigned oil on masonite bearing acquisition label on verso with “Estate of H. C. Beaver” (Herman Charles, 1908-2004)

 Beaver, a self taught artist, was inspired by the loose brushwork of the post-impressionists like Van Gogh and Signac, although with a more muted palette. Painting mostly portraits and landscapes, Beaver’s preferred subject was sailboats- reminiscent of Monet’s interest in boats. Clearly a fan of Impressionism, Beaver hardly strayed from that visual language, instead doubling down on the thickness of his paints, much like other American Impressionists before him, namely George Luks.

 19 1/2 x 15 1/2 in appropriate contemporary frame
