Friday's Featured Painting #2
Time for another Friday painting this one featuring a classic wonderful oil on panel. This one is titled "Entertainment of the Boston Rifle Rangers by the Portland Rifle Club in Portland Harbor, August 12, 1829" by Charles Codman (circa 1830) who was a noted landscape painter of Portland, Maine. His art is featured at the Portland Museum of Art as mature, fine early American landscape painting. Codman began as a decorative painter and had no formal training but eventually produced mature works of romance and beauty. His work was "discovered" in 1828 by the contemporary art critic, John Neal (1793–1876).
Some title for a painting huh!! That's all there is for today my friends. Have a great weekend and until next time be blessed.
