Born in 1890, John Frost often found himself painting the sceneries of Southern California in an Impressionist style. In the 1920s, Frost’s work particularly inclined toward French Impressionism. The artist used wispy brushwork and focused on a soft, pastel palette. A fine example of John Frost’s work from this period will be available in the upcoming California Art sale, presented by Bonhams. The landscape composition shows a balance between light and shadow. It features strokes of lavender, brown, and green.
The auction also highlights Armin Hansen’s oil on board painting titled Men at Sea. In 1913, Hansen moved to Monterey to explore the aesthetics of the city. It was only in 1916 that he started to emphasize Monterey’s fishing culture as his primary subject. The available painting’s lot essay describes the nature of the work: “The men and the sea are both depicted as formidable—his fishermen ‘both serve the sea and make it serve them.’” View the complete listings and register to bid online on Bonhams’ website.
