This painting was featured in our weekly email on 2/23/18 along with the following gallery comments:

Arnold Turtle was a Brit who came to the States to study accounting. He was based in Chicago and began taking night classes at the Chicago Art Institute and by 1928, he was painting full-time and never looked back. Today’s painting, The Wharfs (our title) was created in that first year on the job and reflects Turtle’s lifelong painting interest of harbors. It’s an oil on board and we purchased it under glass. We investigated cleaning it (thought it’s very clean) but elected not to touch it due to the thinness of the paint. Instead we re-set it under glare-reduced museum glass and it remains in its original frame. A nice work emanating from the very beginning of Turtle’s career.
