Harvey Joiner (Kentucky/Indiana, 1852-1932) oil on board landscape painting depicting sunlight breaking through a deserted road or path in a lush springtime forest setting. Signed "Harvey Joiner" lower left. Housed in a gilt carved rococo style frame with molded gilt wood liner, placard with artist name attached to lower margin of liner. Sight: 9 1/2" H x 19 1/2" W. Framed: 18 1/4" H x 27 1/4" W. Biography (from the Filson Historical Society): Born in Charlestown, Indiana, Harvey Joiner showed artistic capability at an early age. At 16, he worked on boats on the bayous of Louisiana, where he completed sketches of African-American culture. In the spring of 1874 he met a German portrait painter named Hoffman in St. Louis, and became his assistant and pupil. In later years Joiner became an itinerant painter, and eventually established a studio in Louisville, KY. He concentrated on portraits for the first twenty years of his career. Later he became famous for his woodland scenes, especially of beech trees, and exhibited all over the world. It is known that he exhibited in a private gallery in Denmark in 1923. Joiner's work is noted for its unique use of light and shadow, recalling the great French landscape artists of the 19th century.
CONDITION: Painting in overall very good condition. Frame with minor wear and some losses, primarily to lower left corner and minor rubbing to right margin of gilt liner.
