African-American painter Beauford Delaney (American, 1901-1979), born in Knoxville, Tennessee, was greatly impacted by the Harlem Renaissance cultural arts revolution of New York City, holding numerous exhibitions and eventually moving to teach art as a WPA listed artist. By the 1950s Delaney, among many African American expatriates, would continue his artistic career in culturally enriched Paris. This untitled oil on linen depicts a impressionist waterfront landscape, a unique subject for the artist, best known for portraiture. Markings include artist's signature and date ['41, Beauford Delaney] to lower right corner. This work of art remains in very good condition, with no structural issues. Dimensions provided reflect painting without frame.
