Descripción

"Artist Ben Austrian is best known as the creator of the Bon Ami Chick-a trademark still used by that company in modified form nearly a century after its birth. Less know, Austrian was highly regarded as an artist before painting the source of that trademark, 'Hansa't Scratched yet,' and his work is highly regarded today. In 1900, his 'A Day's Hunt' a large picture of hanging game, drew some 30,000 viewers to Earle's Galleries in Philadelphia. The trompe-l'oeil still life made the Reading, Pennsylvania artist 'the talk of the studios' and earned him $2,500, a hefty fee at the time. Other triumphs included 'A Golden Harvest,' a bright yellow cluster of corn that was 'the object of intense interest toi many thousands of people.' Like many American artists, Austrian opened a studio in Paris. He also exhibited in London where he was dubbed 'the Landseer of Chickens,' after the popular English animal painter Sir Edwin landseer {SIC}. But success didn't come easily.While always popular in his native Berks County, Austrian's inquisitive chicks and unpeopled landscapes today bring back reassuring memories of a simplier, more understandable past to many people casting about for familiar landmarks and values in an unsettling age. In 1990, the Reading Museum held a retrospective of some 50 of the artist'as works." This book has 120 pages and is profusely illustrated. Overall, this is a FINE copy with FINE dustjacket of this SCARCE title. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. N° de ref. de la librería 062624
