Irene Aronson Oil Painting: A whimsical oil on canvas labelled on verso: "Russian Market in the Snow... Irene Aronsohn... Forest Hills West, L.I., NY." Paint is applied in a pointillist manner, and the total effect is achieved by utilizing negative (unpainted canvas) space in conjunction with the brightly painted, naive depictions of a street scene. Appears to be in its original frame with a typed exhibition label on verso and a typed "by Irene Aronsohn" label affixed to the glass which covers the canvas. On a stretcher, 12" x 13", framed to 19" x 20."
Apparently Aronson spelled her name in various manners throughout her career (Aronson, Aronsohn, Anderson). She was born in Germany in 1918, but was active as an artist in Rego Park/Forst Hills, New York.
Condition: Painting is in fine condition. Frame has been overpainted and has minimal gesso loss.
