Karl Albert California Plein Air Oil On Canvas
The central mass of the great pepper trees sheltering the house is what gives this astonishing painting its heft. The classic Central Valley landscape masterfully rendered. Canvas measures 20 x 24.
KARL ALBERT (1911-2007) California Landscape Artist & Plein Air Painter.
Karl Albert grew up in Wyoming and began painting about 1930 while working as a postmaster in Oro Grande, a small town in the Mojave desert. He first studied with EDGAR PAYNE & SAM HYDE HARRIS followed by study at the Art Center School in Los Angeles. Before 1960 he painted Impressionist canvases in plein air; but after that time he confined his painting to his studio producing works in a much tighter style. Karl Albert's subjects include desert landscapes and scenes of the foothil near Pasadena.
