After Alfred Montgomery (American, 1857-1922). Oil on canvas painting depicting a basket with ears of corn spilling out.
This work is very similar to work by Alfred Montgomery. A "farmer-painter" for most of his life, ears of corn were a staple in Montgomery's work from early on. He boasted that if he was crossing a street a horse would try to reach out and eat the corn that his paintings depicted. It took him nearly nine years to learn his unique technique of layering paint to produce a textured and raised effect for each kernel that adds both depth and realism.Sight; height: 19 in x width: 26 1/2 in.
