ARTHUR BEECHER CARLES (AMERICAN 1882-1952)
"CHAMONIX"

Executed between 1908-1910.

Provenance: Collection of Dr. and Mrs. Norman H. Taylor, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Collection of Mrs. Leo Asbell.
Acquired directly from the above.
The Collection of Perry & June Ottenberg, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
EXHIBITED:
"Arthur B. Carles (1882-1952): Painting with Color," Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, September 23-November 27, 1983; and The Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., April 28-June 17, 1984; and The National Academy of Design, New York, New York, September 11-November 4, 1984, no. 18 (illustrated in the exhibition catalogue p. 43).

NOTE:
The present painting may have been painted while the artist was in Annecy during his first trip to France in 1908-1910. The mountain is built with distinct brushstrokes moving in various directions across the surface of the canvas, energizing the sky, the clouds and the hills with incredible vigor. By applying the pigments in wide brushes, Carles produces impastos in the clouds and the mountains, whose curves echo each other. Patches of deep blue, green and lavender brilliantly contrast with vivid yellow hues and touches of red and orange.

Sold for $26,250
Estimated at $15,000 - $25,000
