Beautiful limited edition signed and numbered print by the famous American impressionist painter Richard Earl Thompson. This is a landscape in the winter created in 1980 It is a numbered print 63/1000 and the artist has signed picture in the lower left hand corner. Double matted and framed under glass in a gold tone frame. It measures 35" x 28". Richard Earl Thompson legacy to the world is the gift of enduring beauty of nature captured on canvas in all its myriad moods. An American Impressionist of renown, he has been compared to Monet, but preferred to think of himself as “an extension” to the impressionists “a continuing link.” Profoundly influenced by the Master of the French Impressionist School, he also embraced ideas from Spanish, Italian and American painters. Creating his own unique style by incorporating a broader 20th Century color palette, which included earth tones, and combining painting techniques, Thompson's canvases convey a powerful and harmonious combination of diversified subject matter, exquisite brush work, skillful draftsmanship and luminosity. He summed up his painting simply, 'I hope I have sincerity. I have tried to interpret things as I feel inside. I have tried not to be something I am not. No shock treatments, no political messages, compositions based rather on tranquil scenes - a sincere approach to painting to which all people can relate. When drawing, the proportion is pretty well established, and I like to devote time to the color of things as the sun creates them. Color, then is unlimited; it is ever-changing. I see myself not as an extension of the camera, but of the emotions these colors can evoke.' He remarked that today we have colors at our fingertips that the early impressionists lacked so we can arrive at even greater variations of light and color. Through the years he perfected the use of color to such an extent that his painting vary from subtle mood scenes and pleasant tranquil setting to high brilliance.

Beautiful limited edition signed and numbered print of water lilies, number 96/1000 by Richard Earl Thompson in 1978 showing water lilies in the pond. Double matted and framed under glass with a gold tone frame. It measures 34" x 30". Richard Earl Thompson (1914-1991) was a 20th century American Impressionist painter who began his career as a commercial illustrator in Chicago, Illinois. In 1959, he broke away from a career as a commercial illustrator, which began in 1933, to pursue Impressionist painting. He was a prolific painter, often compared stylistically to Monet. Art critics agreed Thompson was a master of color and light. "Thompson's great appreciation for nature is observed in his landscapes that represent a point in time that has both a sense of history and eternity. The artist found beauty all around him; It was as near as his favorite fishing hole or a neighbor's backyard. In these simple yet intimate places, Thompson reminded others to take time to stop and take another look." Please see items
