This painting was featured in our weekly email on 2/2/18 along with the following gallery comments:
Frank Hohenberger was one of the early Brown County artists and really, in the context of historic Indiana art, the only photographer that we deal in. I wish there had been more photographers, ‘back in the day’, as I think it would have brought more attention and interest. Nevertheless, the first and last name in historic, native Indiana photography is Frank Hohenberger. And my gosh, he must have over 10,000 works preserved over at Lilly Library in Bloomington. He was a busy man. Today’s piece, Owl Creek Cabin is a neat example of the Brown County compositions Hohenberger is known for. It features figures in the midst of their daily, rugged existence. A nostalgic image, even at the time of its creation.—
