This painting was featured in our weekly email on 3/20/15 along with the following gallery comments:
Anthony Buchta hails from Iowa and studied at the Chicago Art Institute. He worked in Chicago for many years thereafter, teaching and doing commercial art work. He began traveling to Brown County in the late 1920s and moved there permanently in 1936. Church in the Valley is a very nice example of his work which I find straddles the line between painterly and ‘illustratorly’. The painting has been cleaned and conserved and the original frame has been re-leafed. A strong example from one of Brown County’s ‘second generation’ of artists.
