Washington Girard (Tennessee, 1873-1931) oil on canvas landscape painting depicting late autumn beech trees along a still creek at dusk. Signed "Washington Girard" in red lower left. Housed in a wooden frame. Sight: 16" H x 11 1/2" W. Framed: 23 1/4" H x 18 3/4" W. Biography: "William Washington "Wash" Girard was born on Sycamore Creek in Cheatham County, TN and after high school traveled to New York to study under marine painter Edward Moran. Following the death of his girlfriend, he returned to Nashville, where he continued painting and was a prolific writer. His paintings of beech trees, his favorite theme, were often small and painted on Sycamore Creek or Brown's Creek in the Nashville area. Not overly sentimental, these paintings were praised for their romanticism while remaining realistic." (source: Weesner, "William Washington Girard", Tennessee Historical Quarterly, Spring, 1986).


Some inpainting noted to a couple of tree trunks, a few to the body of water and the lower right corner, all visible under UV light examination.
