About the Item: What is she dreaming about? Something in the book that is open in front of her? And who are the other characters in this moody, quiet, lovely scene? Not only a wonderful painting, but really captures that WPA period feel. A pensive painting sure to bring you peace. With frame it measures 33" x 27"; canvas measures 30" x 24". Frame has some weathering (probably original) but is still serviceable. The following is some bio information about the artist I pulled from AskArt:

"Born in Swerzen, Russia, Bernard Green came to the US at a young age and settled in the New York City area. He studied art at the National Academy of Design, the Art Students League, the College of the City of New York and NYU, exhibiting at the NAD as early as 1910, where he won a prize both in 1910 and 1913, as well as at the ASL, winning another prize in 1914.

Highly accomplished both as painter and etcher, Green continued exhibiting at the NAD throughout the years 1913-1946, at the Pan-Pacific Exposition in California in 1915, and at various galleries and other venues including a solo show at the Roerich Museum in 1930. His style was early 20th-century American Impressionist, and his interests covered a wide range from landscapes and still life to portraiture, including black subjects.

Green's work is in permanent collections in the J B Speed Art Museum in Louisville, Kentucky, and the Oakland Art Gallery. Memberships included the Rockport AA, the Alled Artists of America, the Modern Etchers Group, and Washington Heights Artists' Guild.

He taught for many years at Thomas Jefferson High School in New York City, and often painted during his summer vacation at the shore in both Nantucket and Rockport, Massachusetts."

Good condition for being nearly a century old. Very light craquelure, no paint loss.
