This sparkling hyper- realist piece circa 1985 is oil on a prepared Masonite 12 x 14 panel signed lower right “Hamblen.” Richard F Hamlin “1932–2017) was born in Rhode Island and painted much of his career in New Jersey. Calling his style “Illuminist “, he was largely self-taught and took his earliest inspiration from the canvases of Hudson River School painters like Cole, Inness, and Church. His meticulous technique and passion for capturing light and mood in his often small format works reflects the spirit of the earlier landscape painters. This work, titled “Reflections” on the verso, delights in the play of light on the water and the painstaking rendering of reflections in the still waters of a forest pool.
