Emil Eugen Holzhauer (Georgia/Florida, 1887-1986) oil on masonite neighborhood street scene in Macon, Georgia, depicting a row of tidy houses on the left side of a tree-lined neighborhood street with figures congregated on a porch. Two figures converse by a sidewalk gate and children seated on the street corner watch other children at play. A large brick structure is visible in the background. Signed lower left "Holzhauer," signature partially obscured. Additionally inscribed en verso in red MACON and HOLZHAUER and in black MACON, GA. Housed in a green-painted wood frame, likely the original. Sight: 19 1/2" H x 31 1/4" W. Framed: 26 1/2" H x 38 1/2" W. Biography: Emil Holzhauer emigrated to the U.S. from Germany in 1906. He studied with Robert Henri, whose social realist approach to painting was highly influential for Holzhauer. He held his first solo exhibition in 1915 and exhibited regularly in New York City, while also working in upstate New York.  In 1938 Holzhauer moved to Asheville, NC, and then to Macon, GA, where he became an art professor at Wesleyan College. Throughout the 1930s, Holzhauer became identified with the American Scene movement in art, and was best known for painting the homes and neighborhoods of the working class.  (Source: The Johnson Collection).
