Carl O. Holm, Mass, 1885-1918. Oil on Canvas, 25"h by 23"w in a beautiful gold leaf frame 31"h by 29.5"w. It is signed lower right and dated 1916 and condition is excellent with no old repairs. Provenance: Private Midwestern Collection, Carl Holm was a brilliant artist who studied in Copenhagen and France. A painter of very fine impressionist landscapes and figures, he studied at Zahrtmann's School of Fine Art, Copenhagen and began exhibiting in 1908 at the age of twenty three. He moved to Boston, Massachusetts in 1912 and died during the influenza epidemic of 1918. Because of this his paintings are very rare. This is probably one of his finest pieces.
