A large mystical, abstract night scene by Washington, DC native, John Chapman Lewis. Signed LEWIS'51 in the LL corner. A member of the Washington School of Color, Lewis taught at The Corcoran School of Art and Marymount University. His works were featured at biennials at the Corcoran Gallery and also at The Philip's Collection. There is very minor paint loss/chipping.The paint loss is the lower right side; the center top has just a nick. There also appears to be some wear to the right of the building within the blue area though perhaps this is part of the picture. The frame measures 32-7/8 x 40-1/5". Would benefit from a cleaning.
