Sale 2338 Lot 2
EDWARD M. BANNISTER (1828 - 1901)
Untitled (Landscape with Woman Seated by a Stone Wall).
Oil on linen canvas, 1881. 406x560 mm; 16x22 inches. Signed and dated in oil, lower right.
Provenance: private Rhode Island collection; private California collection. With the label of the art supply company, A. A. Walker and Co., Boston, on the original stretcher bars.
An impressive mid- to late career Bannister painting, this large study of foliage and shadows includes the unusual feature of what appears to be a female figure. The seated woman with a striking red ribbon on her hat is perhaps one of Bannister's students who had joined him on the painting outing - she appears to holding a pad or board.
