George Benjamin Luks (American, 1867-1933) Attributed: Impressionist South West Landscape. Watercolor on paper, signed lower right, framed.

Known as a 'real character', full of life both in reality and in his painting, George Luks was a leading figure in the New York art world in the early part of the 20th century. He did lively portraits and genre paintings of everyday people engaged in activity rather than self consciously posed.

13 1/2 x 18 1/2 inches (frame); 8 1/4 x 13 inches (sight)

Private collection, Madison, Wi, USA.


Good overall condition, moisture stain on left edge; light foxing marks in the center of the painting; mat burn; this painting is framed without glass.
