DescriptionEDWARD ALFRED CUCUEL (American 1875-1954)
Luncheon at Water's Edge
Oil on canvas
40 x 50 inches (101.6 x 127 cm)
Signed lower right: Cucel
Kunstmesse Hamburg, Germany, 2006
A languid afternoon by the water's edge is a favorite subject for Cucuel. His women are portrayed in repose, usually in flowing pastel dresses glowing with sunlight. His own Impressionist style was developed while studying in Paris and then in Germany. Early employment as an illustrator for newspapers in San Francisco influenced his later paintings. His compositions are often reminiscent of advertisements for "the good life." This painting will be included in the forthcoming catalogue raisonné by Helmut Krause.
Estimate: $70,000 - $90,000.
Minor craquelure, and strengthening: top center, near the tree, a little in the parasol and to the right of the parasol.
