      EDWARD M. BANNISTER (1828 - 1901)
      Landscape, Field and Woods.

      Watercolor and pencil on thin wove paper, circa 1885. 102x178 mm; 4x7 inches. Initialed in pencil, lower right. Titled in pencil on the mount, lower margin.

      Provenance: private collection, New York; thence by descent to the current owner.

      Exhibited: The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York, with the label on the frame back.

      Landscape, Field and Woods is a beautiful and fresh watercolor study, and a scarce example of a plein air sketch by this important Rhode Island landscape artist. This is only the third watercolor by the artist to come to auction. Similar sketches in both pencil and watercolor are in the collection of the Amistad Research Center, Tulane University, New Orleans.
