        ALLAN FREELON (1895 - 1960)
        Untitled (Red Barn, Gloucester, MA).

        Oil on canvas, circa 1935. 420x508 mm; 16 1/2x20 inches. Signed in oil, lower right.

        Provenance: the artist; thence by descent to the artist's sister, Mary Freelon, and her husband, John Kouzmannoff, Brookfield, WI; private collection. Acquired at the House in the Woods Auction Gallery, Eagle, WI on April 1, 1997, which included a large group of works from the Freelon estate.

        With a copy of two photographs of the artist painting this scene en plein aire. The original photographs were included in the exhibition Rediscovering Allan Freelon: African American Master, Martin Art Gallery Muhlenberg College, January 18 - March 30, 2000.

        Beginning in the late 1920s, Allan Freelon spent many summers in Gloucester, and he exhibited his Gloucester harbors and landscapes widely in the late 1920s and through the mid-1930s. Freelon's impressionist style is associated with his time at Hugh Breckenridge's art school in Gloucester, and a two-year study at the Barnes Foundation from 1927-1929.
