He was elected an Associate of the Academy in 1886 and a full Academician in 1888. He received the Academy’s Third Hallgarten Prize in 1889. From 1889 to 1891, Curran studied at the Académie Julian in Paris, where he studied with Benjamin Constant and Jules Joseph Lefebvre. He won an award at the Paris Salon of 1890.

George Inness N.A.,attributed, New York, New Jersey, 1825-1894. This golden glowing American Impressionist painting, "Landscape in Monclair, NJ " by Inness is 18" by 24" in a French style frame. It is signed G. Inness lower right. It is in good condition with evidence of small craquelure which has been restored and has been relined. Inness is considered to be one of the important Impressionist Painters in the Hudson River School. His paintings sell for up to $2 million. Inness is listed in Boswell, Dawdy, Fieldings, Hughes, Mallett, Samuels, and Who was Who in American Art. As with any artist worthy of the title, George Inness is not easily summed up. Often associated with the Hudson River School, he was, in fact, aesthetically in opposition to the large, detailed canvases which characterized the work of such painters as Thomas Cole (1801-1848) and Frederic Edwin Church (1826-1900), two major representative painters of that group. Others see him as a transplanted member of the French Barbizon School, more in tune with their less grandiose, more intimate landscapes of homely, domesticated scenes of rural France. Still others as the title of this exhibition* indicates see him as a visionary theorist, painting dreamy landscapes fraught with symbolic messages and meanings. And, like any artist, these and many other attempts at pigeonholing might well fit part of the man and his work.

Francis Augustus Silva, New York,1835-1886. Oil on panel, 5"H by 8"W in a 19th C frame (15" H by 18" W), signed and in good condition. Francis Silva was a second generation Hudson River School* painter, who did much painting along the Hudson River and along the coastline from Chesapeake Bay to Cape Ann, Massachusetts. His earliest known painting is titled Cape Ann. He became one of the leading marine painters of the luminist* style of the mid to late 19th century, especially known for his brilliant sunsets with atmospheric* effects. Of him, it was written: "For Silva, the subtle manipulation of light and atmosphere was an aesthetic device that transcended naturalism and became an almost abstract means of expressing sentiment." (Zellman, 265) Francis Silva was the son of a barber who had emigrated from Madeira to New York in 1830. He showed early art talent and with no apparent formal training, he apprenticed to a sign painter in New York and decorated fire wagons, vans, stagecoaches, etc. He also exhibited pen and ink drawings at the American Institute. In 1861, he enlisted in a New York militia and became a Captain of the Ninth New York Volunteer Infantry in the Civil War. He was stricken with malaria, and, wrongfully In 1865, he began his career as fine artist, and in 1868 made his debut at the National Academy of Design's* annual exhibition. That same year, he married Margaret Watts of Keyport, New Jersey. From that time, he received much acclaim for his serene, atmospheric marine paintings, and his later paintings tended towards Impressionism in style. In 1872, he was elected to the American Watercolor Society*. Francis Silva maintained his studio in New York but moved to New Jersey in 1880. He died in 1886. His paintings sell for up to $2.5 Million.
