This painting was featured in our weekly email on 8/22/13 along with the following gallery comments:

George Jo Mess channels his inner Maxfield Parish. We’re pleased to offer one of the most significant pieces to ever come to market by this Indiana treasure. The theme, that of water nymphs (or ‘girls on rocks’ as Parish is quoted) was quite popular from 1910-1930. This masterwork highlights Mess’ inimitable treatments as well as his broad artistic range. We would place this painting’s creation at c. 1930. It has been in the same family since purchased from the artist and is completely fresh to market.
