May Stream
re: Georges LaChance - May Stream (artwork #4048)

Georges LaChance (1888-1964)

May Stream

Oil on Canvas
16 x 20 inches
Signed Lower Left

This LaChance painting was featured in our weekly email on 4/11/14 along with the following gallery comments:

Georges LaChance (Jack to his friends and drinking buddies) hailed from New York and moved to Brown County permanently in the early 1930s. A Hoosier Salon exhibitor from the 1926 inaugural show through 1961 (and missing an entry only a couple times over that amazing run) he was a prolific painter with a very established, loose hand. Very free and colorful — in many ways his work exemplifies ‘Midwestern Impressionism’ of the era. And May Stream is a great example of his style and subject matter. Wild and with a bright palette, the scene being one of the local streams — Salt Creek or maybe Lick Creek. Typical Brown County and typical May look — by June, that water is generally gone! The painting has gone through conservation and has just a minor amount of in-painting. The original frame arrived a hot mess and has been completely restored and re-gilded in gold metal leaf. The painting and the frame marry together wonderfully.
