Robert Birdwell (Tennessee, 20th century), large panoramic oil on canvas painting titled "Knoxville in the spring/city series #2", depicting the Knoxville city skyline as viewed from the Tennessee River. Signed lower right "Birdwell" and dated 1984-1985. Excellent condition. 6' W x 4' H. Biography (courtesy of Stephen Wicks, Curator – Knoxville Museum of Art): Birdwell, along with Buck Ewing, Carl Sublett, and Walter Stevens, was among the early Abstract Expressionist painters in East Tennessee. While Sublett and Stevens found their primary inspiration along the Maine coastline, Birdwell often drew inspiration from urban settings. Here, he captures the intricate interplay of geometric forms, varying textures and contrasting colors along Gay Street in downtown Knoxville, TN.
