EDWARD M. BANNISTER (1828 - 1905)
Untitled (River Landscape).

Oil on linen canvas, 1879. 305x381 mm; 12x15 inches. Signed and dated in oil, lower right.

Provenance: private collection, Pennsylvania.

This beautiful, atmospheric river scene by Edward M. Bannister is an excellent example of his mature, late period painting. Banner painted several similar river landscapes in 1879, a prolific and busy year for him. This river scene could possibly be in New Hampshire, where Bannister often took painting excursions.
