Here we have a stunning WPA era painting of a family planting a tree, with Dad shoveling away. This beauty contains some of the most amped up WPA strokes this side of the Mississippi. Even if you only catch this painting out of the corner of your eye, you already know it's a blitzkrieg blitz of WPA greatness. Not to mention that you have a scene of family planting a tree, not the most common situation in an artwork. Ahead of it's time! Making the world a better place while Dad's digging in the dirt. The little girl is waiting with the hose, pointing it right at Pops. I can't get over the blocky body style of the family. It is so...good.
The WPA era painting came out of an old estate in Milwaukee. I can't find a signature so we're dealing with a mystery artist. I was told it was likely produced in the heart of the 1930s.
The WPA oil on board measures 26"wide by 18 1/4" tall. There is slight surface patina throughout the painting. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
