Attributed to Albert Pinkham Ryder (New York/Massachusetts, 1847-1917) oil on panel painting depicting a nighttime scene of waves crashing against a rocky shore under a glowing moon. Unsigned. Housed in a giltwood frame with off white linen liner. Sight: 7 3/4" H x 9 3/4" W. Framed: 13" H x 14 3/4" W. Provenance: Private Chattanooga, TN collection, purchased in California in the 1970s. Biography: Albert Pinkham Ryder, was born in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Ryder entered the National Academy of Design in 1870, but soon after he became allied with a group of more progressive artists, like J. Alden Weir, who formed the Society of American Artists in 1877. That same year Ryder traveled abroad for the first time, and he spent the summer of 1882 in Europe and North Africa where he became inspired by old masters. Between 1878 and 1887 Ryder exhibited at the Society of American Artist group shows, as well as at the National Academy. He was admired as a colorist and developed his own personal technique, using a dark palette, heavy pigment with multiple layers and glazes to create an inner luminosity. It is recognized that his inventive, imaginative mind and technique foreshadow the similar approaches made by later surrealist and abstract expressionist artists.
