We’re honored to be in the company of another T.C. Steele this art season. His stature in Indiana collecting circles can’t be overstated – he’s the native Hoosier artist against whom all others are measured. His output of American Impressionist paintings was both vast and of consistently high quality. Autumn Twilight of the Woods is completely fresh to market — essentially a single-owner painting created in 1922. Showing a late autumn vista, Steele draws the eye back from the near trees to the mist (or water?) in the distant valley. This painting has Selma Steele’s 1926 estate stamp, verso and is housed in the original frame which bears some notation as per title and the original purchaser. It’s in flawless condition with no in-painting or disruption to the surface. The piece was recently put through a simple conservation and the original Lieber frame was lightly cleaned bringing the piece back to its original 1922 form.
