Xavier Ironside (Tennessee, 20th/21st century) modernist watercolor depicting a moonlit nocturnal landscape, likely East Tennessee, with trees that cast long shadows into the foreground. Signed and dated lower right: "Xavier Ironside '68." Housed under plexiglass in a silvered and ebonized wood frame with ivory mat and gray reveal. Sight: 12 3/4" H x 19 3/4" W. Frame: 21 3/4" H x 28 1/4" W. Biographical note: "Xavier Ironside, born in England, was brought to the United States by his uncle as a child after the death of his mother during World War II. Upon reaching the United States his name was changed from Tom to Xavier. He studied at the Royal Academy of Art in England for a time then returned to Knoxville, Tennessee to work as an artist and raise a family. Xavier Ironside found notoriety when Senator Howard Baker of Tennessee gave an interview to Esquire Magazine mentioning his work. Other publications were soon inquiring about him. His paintings are deemed to be in the Wyeth style." (Courtesy of askART).
