      EDWARD M. BANNISTER (1828 - 1901)
      Untitled (Rhode Island Landscape).

      Oil on burlap linen canvas. 1886. 305x406 mm; 12x16 inches. Signed and dated in oil, lower right.

      Provenance: private Rhode Island collection.

      This later Bannister landscape is an energetic depicition of a pastoral path. Its impastoed brush strokes, tonal colors and off-center composition show the growing influence of the Impressionism upon his subject matter. In 1886, Bannister wrote his influential esssay The Artist and His Critic for the Providence Art Club that "championed spirtual expression and poetic sentiment" and lauded his mentor Jean Fran├žois Millet. Rodgers p. 12.
