overstockArt La Pastiche Landscape Artwork by Maurer with Gold Luminoso Frame

Maurer's unique talent for composition and color arrangement bring forth this unparalleled landscape design. The soft lines step outside the boundaries of concepts of Impressionism and welcome the Fauvist preference for overall view and feeling rather than realistic values of the work. Beautiful rich shades of color not often seen in nature give the feel of an enchanted Forest. An energetic masterpiece, this Circa 1912 painting will encourage conversation in any rooan enchanted Forest. An energetic masterpiece, this Circa 1912 painting will encourage conversation in any room. Alfred Henry Maurer (1868 - 1932) was an American painter. He exhibited his work in avant-garde circles internationally and in new York city during the early twentieth century. Highly respected today, his work met with little critical or commercial success in his lifetime. Having the distinction of being America's first modernist, Maurer experimented with many styles until settling into contemporary expression believing the overall perception of work was more important than the finer details. Above all, Maurer declared color arrangement to be the most important element in composition. He also believed art could not completely imitate nature, but nature could be intensified in art lending to his love and use of vivid color. Although much of Maurer's works are privately held, many are included in the collection of the Carnegie museum of art, the Chicago art Institute, the Whitney museum of American art, and countless other across the nation.
