Donald Roy Purdy Modernist Painting of River Sailing
This stunning river sailing oil painting is by Donald Ray Purdy (American, b.1924). It’s a strong example of the artist’s unique style of realism and love of “en plein air” observation of nature and everyday scenes. He was inspired by both the realism of the French Barbizon School of Painting and the direct observation of nature from Impressionism. A beautiful work of art in a perfect ornate gold frame to enhance any interior space. Oil on board. Signed lower right.
