Wordless Week: Week 9



Yes, there is a history connection here......

There was no explanation for last week’s wordless, but here is the explanation for the wordless of the Queen Victoria painting here in case you missed it.

Must be an american painter I don't know. It's not one of the french impressionists that's for sure.

okay, don't know this one, can't wait for the answer.

Must be the tree of the knowledge of good and bad.

And how come everybody is allowed to post their Wordless Wednesday pictures a day early? I'm a little bit huffy.

Oh! You've have me!
This is tantalizing!
OK. I think this is a venerable gnarled oak. This reminds me of the foothills of New England or Connecticut. I think some of the other trees are birches.
I can only think of the Charter Oak of Connecticut.
I have no idea of the artist as I'm not sure it is a well-known artist or illustrator.

The Educational Tour Marm said...

Oh Well! After further research.it doesn't look anything like the famous Charter Oak!

I thought the style was American Regionalism, so I also tried Thomas Hart Benton etc.

No luck!

I love the colors in this paticular painting as well and can't wait to share about it. He has a large body of work and some look like this and then some are really off beat. I will post a link to several of the artist's work as well.

Tour Marm, you have me as well with your Figure It Out Friday. I'm still researching it when I can......I've already gone through hundred of images:)

Thanks for visiting my WW and don't forget Thursday is just around the corner.

This painting looks familiar....

Duchess said...

For some strange reason, I think I have seen this picture before, just don't know where. Once again, you have done a great job, "educating" us.
Happy WWv

I've written myself a reminder to come back by to see the explanation. Love the colors!

Jill said...

Beautiful painting! Very tranquil. I don't know much about art myself but I know what I like. ;)

The Educational Tour Marm said...

OK. The key to my Friday is the bridge. If you can figure out which bridge it is and what is near it that might have to do with Robert E. Lee (already established), then you will get the answer.

However, there are no clues to the tree and I have also gone through 100's of images as well!

We have too much time on our hands!

OK. I really do give up!
I've looked at more trees last night than Joyce Kilmer did in his lifetime!
I also investigated African-American artists from Georgia like Dodd and Hale.
Besides going on Antiques Roadshow and asking for opinions, this is the limit!

Can't wait!
