EDWARD M. BANNISTER (1828 - 1901)
Untitled (Landscape, Trees by Water).

Watercolor with graphite on textured, wove paper, 1898. 318x451 mm; 12 1/2x17 3/4 inches. Signed and dated in watercolor, lower right.

Provenance: private Rhode Island collection; thence by descent to the current owner.

This bright landscape is a very fine, large example of Bannister's watercolors. This Barbizon composition, with a copse of trees and a body of water, is very reminiscent of Landscape With Cow and Figure, circa 1881, included in the 2001 exhibition Edward M. Bannister: A Centennial Retrospective at Roger King Gallery and Kenkeleba House.
