Ben Austrian, Impressionist Landscape, Oil on Board, Signed and Framed

$3,700.00

Description:

Ben Austrian (American, 1870–1921) oil on board, signed and dated 1915m depicting an impressionist landscape with lake. Framed and untouched, with inscription to the back by the artist.

Ben Austrian's painting career began by exhibiting a trompe l’oeil painting called 'A Day’s Hunt' that received attention in Philadelphia. However, Austrian’s success came from his animal paintings of chickens. In 1902 he went to Paris, where he opened a studio, and in London he was acclaimed “The Landseer of Chickens.” One of his chickens became the famous trademark for the Bon Ami slogan, “hasn’t scratched yet.”
