CAPTIVATING ANTIQUE MODERN IMPRESSIONIST OIL PAINTING ON BOARD BY EARLY NEW YORK ASHCAN PAINTER HILDE B KAYN. THIS WORK DEPICTS A SOMBER AND EXPRESSIVE GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS HUDDLED AROUND AN INDIVIDUAL LYING ON THE GROUND, APPEARING TO BE FRAGILE AND VULNERABLE. THE FIGURES ARE PORTRAYED IN A SOFT, ALMOST HAZY MANNER TYPICAL OF THE IMPRESSIONIST STYLE, WHICH ADDS EMOTIONAL WEIGHT TO THE SCENE.
THIS IS A BRILLIANT AND PROFOUND PAINTING THAT EVOKES A STRONG EMOTIONAL RESPONSE, TOUCHING ON THEMES OF EMPATHY, RESILIENCE, AND THE IMPORTANCE OF COMING TOGETHER TO HELP THOSE IN NEED. SIGNED BY HILDE B KAYN. IT DATES AROUND THE 1940s. MILD SCRATCHES TO THE FRAME, AS SHOWN. IT DOES NOT DETRACT FROM ITS BEAUTY IN ANY WAY.DIMENSIONS: 30"W x 26"H.
