A Few Words About the Exhibit
The oil sketches of Lockwood de Forest play seductively at the edge of realism. At once spontaneous and carefully considered, these paintings are the pictorial definition of eloquence. Completed en plein air between 1870 and the artistís death in 1932, his paintings originally served as the artistís personal visual diary of his world travels - not unlike the journal of a poet.
As such, these works continue to delight collectors and artists who see in de Forestís work a deft hand and a rare sensitivity to atmosphere. Sullivan Goss - An American Gallery is pleased to present thirty works - many of which have not been exhibited for more than one hundred years.
