This painting was featured in our weekly email on 2/9/18 along with the following gallery comments:
William Forsyth was a member of the famed ‘Hoosier Group’ and an integral part of the history of Indiana art. He taught at Herron for nearly 30 years and as a result, directly influenced the work of literally hundreds of our next generation of artists. Today’s piece, Irvington Winter (our title) was painted near the Forsyth home, also located in Irvington. It’s a nice, broken-pallet example that showcases Forsyth’s approach. It will soon be married back with its original frame which is off being re-leafed. This painting will be among one hundred pieces which will come to market at our Curated Sale of Historic Indiana Art taking place at the Indianapolis Art Center on April 8, 2018. The sale begins at 1:00p. I’ve been occasionally asked what the ‘curated’ aspect to the sale means. The idea is that every piece in the auction has been through our hands. Everything has been cleaned (as applicable), is surrounded by archival (non-acidic) materials and properly framed. In other words – put together and ready to hang. We hope you are able to make the sale – it will be a fun event and feature many nice Hoosier paintings that have not ever previously come to market.
