The painting could use a minor cleaning, it is in excellent original untouched estate condition.The son of immigrants, George Bruestle was born and raised in New York City where he began a lifelong career in art. In 1886, the year that he enrolled at the Art Students League*, Bruestle made his first trip to Essex, Connecticut where he was inspired to paint. In 1900 when the Old Lyme Art Colony* was officially formed, George was spending time in Old Lyme. He is best remembered for his small and intimate oils of the Lyme countryside. His distinctive hybrid style was the result of a broad spectrum of influences. Inspired by the French Impressionists*, George became impassioned with painting the effects of sunlight. In addition, he was influenced by the academies that he attended in New York and Paris where he developed an expertise in drawing as well as a fondness for the work of Corot. His exposure to these various sources blended with certain regional influences through the free exchange of ideas that characterized the art colonies and clubs of the day. As a result, his adaptation of Impressionist techniques, combined with a stylistic tendency toward favored structural forms and compositions of the Lyme landscape, gave Bruestle's work a uniquely American flavor. From 1897 to 1901, Bruestle was an illustrator for Harper's magazine. Biography from AskArt. See Peter Hastings Falk, Editor, Who Was Who in American Art for more information on the artist.
