George W. Picknell Oil Painting on Canvas "Blue Winter"

Item Details

An oil painting on canvas titled Blue Winter by listed artist George W. Picknell (American, 1864-1943). The work is signed in the lower right, and housed in a beveled gold-tone painted wood frame. Present to the verso are a descriptive label, various numeric inscriptions in ink, an orange decal, the remnant of a label to the lower center, and holes from previous screws.

George Picknell was a noted landscape painter and brother of fellow artist William Lamb Picknell (American, 1853-1897). This is a particularly striking nocturne subject for the artist, who was largely an impressionist painter.
