George Herbert Baker was part of the Richmond Group of artists but existed largely outside of that assembly. He got his nose bent out of joint with the Richmond Art League and largely shunned their efforts. Baker worked in oil, pastel and watercolor and was known primarily as a colorist. Today’s works, Purple Road and Autumn Shadows (out titling on both) really highlight his infusion of hue into simple landscapes. We don’t see enough purple roads in this life – just sayin’… Both works are in great shape and housed in the original frames. We cleaned the frames up and spaced the pastels off the glass. Then put them back together with acid-free materials. Each is glazed in glare-free glass, allowing the viewer to get right inside the works.
This painting will appear in our 2nd Annual Curated Sale of Historic Indiana Art taking place Sunday April 8, 2018 at the Indianapolis Art Center.
