A charcoal or soft pencil drawing of an unidentified young girl, executed circa 1950's, signed at lower right by the important New Hope School impressionist, JOHN FOLINSBEE (1892-1972). The work, 12" by 10" inside the mat, (19" by 17 1/2" in old frame with Trenton, NJ framer label on backing) is in excellent condition save for browning at edges from mat contact. Folinsbee was born in Buffalo, New York, where he studied for a short time. He took lessons from painter Jonas Lie, then, later, at Woodstock, Birge Harrison and John Carlson were teachers, and in New York City at the Art Students League, Frank Vincent DuMond was an instructor. All influenced the young artist, early works of whom tended toward Tonalism. Later works became more and more impressionistic. In later years Folinsbee was a familiar sight, along with his friend Harry Leith-Ross, in Lambertville, New Jersey and New Hope across the river, painting the picturesque local scenery. Today, major oils can sell into the tens of thousands of dollars. A catalog raisonne of the works of this major American artist is in preparation. This work was submitted for inclusion in that catalog raisonne and it has been accepted. A reference number has been assigned.
