This painting was featured in our weekly email on 10/18/13 along with the following gallery comments:
George Jo Mess and his artist wife, Evelynne made their home in Indianapolis, less than a mile from Fine Estate’s current location. Much of his art however, emanated from Brown County where they owned a cabin and the Adirondacks where they traveled periodically. This piece, likely from c. 1945 appears to be set in the Adirondacks and features Mess’ trademark abstractions, particularly the interesting perspectives and his signature trees. A nice example from this nationally acclaimed Indiana artist. The painting has been cleaned and conserved and is displayed in a period reproduction frame.
