Emil Eugen Holzhauer (Georgia/Florida, 1887-1986) oil on canvas, laid on board street scene, depicting two boys carrying a large basket on a tree-lined neighborhood street with well-kempt houses to each side, a female figure walking in the distance and a green mountain in the background. Signed en verso HOLZHAUER and additionally inscribed "Cold Springs Hudson." Housed in a green painted wood frame, likely original, with linen mat and gilt liner. Sight: 17 3/8" H x 23 3/8" W. Framed: 25 1/2" H x 31 3/8" W. Biographical information (Adapted from AskArt): Holzhauer is known for Avant-garde genre, landscape and interiors painting, and teaching. Holzhauer immigrated to New York from Germany in 1906, where he studied art with Robert Henri and fellow students Edward Hopper, George Bellows, and Rockwell Kent. Influenced by the 1913 Armory Show and Henri's teaching, Holzhauer adopted modernist elements of Expressionism, Fauvism, and Social Realism. He taught art at the Chicago Art Institute from 1921 to 1942 and at Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia from 1942 to 1953. In 1953, he retired to Niceville, Florida where he taught until 1972.


Canvas has been laid on board. Abrasions and losses to the top margin of the painting, possibly from overcleaning, primarily to the upper left corner. Mat with some grime and frame with minor scattered abrasions.
