Gerritt Sinclair (American, 1890-1955) oil on board painting of patrons in an art gallery and an artist at his easel, with paintings covering the deep red walls and a uniformed guard standing at the door. Housed in artist's own handpainted wood frame. Signed and titled en verso "Gerrit Sinclair Art Gallery" and dated 1951. 12" x 9 1/4" sight, 14" x 11 1/4" framed. Biography (Courtesy Askart: The Artists' Bluebook): Gerrit Van Sinclair studied art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago from 1910 to 1915. His best known teachers at the Art Institute were John Vanderpoel and John Norton. Following his service in World War I, he became a member of the faculty of the Layton School of Art upon the school's founding in 1920. He continued to teach at the Layton School and at the Oxbow Summer School of Art in Saugatuck, Michigan until his retirement in 1954. During his lifetime Sinclair's paintings were exhibited at the Salon d'Automne in Paris, the Whitney Museum in New York, the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., the Carnegie Institute in Pittsburgh, the Art Institute of Chicago and in many other museums and galleries. He received numerous prizes and commissions for his work including a W.P.A. mural commission for the Federal Building in Wassau, Wisconsin. His style is a blend of realism and Impressionism but is clearly modern in its abstract concern for composition and color. CONDITION: 1 tiny accretion and 1 miniscule flake upper center, few abrasions and scratches to frame, overall very good condition.
