William Washington Girard (Tennessee, 1873-1931), large oil on board landscape painting of a grove of beech trees at water's edge, with pink flowering bush and additional beech trees in the left middle ground and a partly cloudy sky above. Original wide molded Art Nouveau giltwood frame. 23" x 16" sight, 23 1/2" x 31" framed. Signed lower left. Biography: William Washington "Wash" Girard was born on Sycamore Creek in Cheatham County, Tenn. and after high school traveled to New York to study under marine painter Edward Moran. Following the death of his girlfriend, he returned to Nashville, where he continued painting and was a prolific writer. "His paintings of beech trees, his favorite theme, were often small and painted on Sycamore Creek or Brown's Creek in the Nashville area. Not overly sentimental, these paintings were praised for their romanticism while remaining realistic." -Weesner, "William Washington Girard", Tennessee Historical Quarterly, Spring, 1986.
