When a painting turns into the find of a lifetime, you are bound to be excited. Ernest Lawson is an award-winning impressionist and realist artist whose art is featured in dozens of museums and art galleries throughout the world. This piece of art was believed to be missing until now. Only a black and white photo of this exact painting is archived in the Smithsonian Institution. It is our pleasure and privilege to auction off this stunning piece of previously lost history. As a member of the artist's group known as The Eight, Ernest was respected and loved by his colleagues. Lawson stated, "Nature merely suggests something to us to which we add our own ideas. Impressions from nature are merely jumping off points for artistic creations." We are excited to make our own impression on history with this truly unique online auction.
