      RICHARD MAYHEW (1924 - )
      Scarlet Journey.

      Oil on linen canvas, 2006. 762x762 mm; 30x30 inches. Signed in oil, lower right recto. Signed, titled, dated and inscribed "30x30" in ink on the backing paper, verso.

      Provenance: the artist; Stella Jones Gallery, New Orleans; private collection, Atlanta.

      Exhibited: Stella Jones Gallery, National Black Fine Art Show, New York, NY, February 7, 2007, with the label on the frame back.

      This high tone composition by Richard Mayhew is a stunning example of the artist's later landscapes - his colorful and atmospheric paintings push the limits of the genre, and almost embrace abstraction.
