Modernist Woman With Flowers Painting by Donald Roy Purdy
This beautiful “en plein air” portrait on masonite is by Donald Roy Purdy (American, b. 1924). The artist’s passion for nature and direct observation of subject can be seen in this painting. He developed a unique style of realism. Although self- taught, the play of color, light and bold loose brushstrokes take inspiration from French Impressionism and the Barbizon School of Painting in France. This would be a magical work of art to showcase in a home. Signed. Carved wood frame.
