Churchill Ettinger (American, 1903-1984) Vermont winter landscape with a skier, titled Blue Ribbon. Oil on artist board. Size: 9 inches x 12 inches. Circa 1950s. Signed by the artist on the reverse and titled, together with the artist's Weston, VT address. We believe that 'Blue Ribbon' refers to a ski trail by that name on Bromley Mountain. Condition is excellent. Churchill Ettinger was a noted sportsman, printmaker and painter. He studied at the National Academy of Design and the Art Students League in New York City and became an illustrator, producing 'covers' for major outdoors sporting publications. In the early 1950's, he settled in Weston, Vermont, where he produced etchings and painted outdoor scenes. His subjects included sporting dogs, angling, skiing and waterfowl hunting.
