Alexander John Drysdale (American/Louisiana, 1870-1934) oil wash on paper landscape depicting a Louisiana bayou marsh, signed lower left "A. J. Drysdale". Housed in the original carved and painted frame. Sight – 19 1/2"H x 31 1/2"W. Framed – 24 5/8"H x 36 3/4"W. Biography (courtesy Askart: The Artists' Bluebook): Drysdale was born in Marietta, Georgia and moved to New Orleans as a teenager. There he studied at the Southern Art Union and with Paul E. Poincy. He also studied with the Art Students League in New York City under Charles Curran and Frank DuMond. Back in New Orleans, he opened a studio in the French Quarter and began to paint landscapes inspired by local subjects. He is known for using the technique of oil wash, using oil paint thinned with kerosene, that gave his works a characteristic hazy, humid look. Significant commissions included D.H. Holmes Department Store and Sushan Airport. His work is in the collections of the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, and The Historic New Orleans Collection. CONDITION: Overall very good condition.
