re: Adam Emory Albright - Little Sister (artwork #4068)

Adam Emory Albright (1862-1957)

Little Sister

Watercolor on Paper
9 x 7 inches
Attribution, verso

This watercolor was featured in our weekly email on 9/19/14 along with the following gallery comments:

Adam Emory Albright resided in Warrenville, IL (about 30 miles west of the Chicago loop, now very much in the Western Suburbs) and frequently painted in Brown County. It was a natural setting for his work which was extremely sympathetic and generally featured ragamuffin children partaking in timeless activities – fishing, playing in the stream, marching through the field, on the shore, etc. Models often included his own boys – one of whom, Ivan became a leading Chicago artist of his generation. Albright worked mostly in oil, his pieces are very impressionistic and have a wonderfully airy effect. Little Sister comes to us as an outlier — likely a study of an oil of the same title. The piece is unsigned, with annotation, verso indicating the title and the Albright attribution. I have no issue with authenticity – it’s right out of the Albright playbook. Little Sister has gone through paper conservation and is totally pristine. The work is housed in the cutest original frame ever… A very fun and somewhat rare Albright study set in a marvelous package.
