Over the Hill to the River
re: Robert Marshall Root - Over the Hill to the River (artwork #4092)

Robert Marshall Root (1864-1937)

Over the Hill to the River

Oil on Board
16 x 20 inches
Signed Lower Left

This Root painting was featured in our weekly email on 5/30/14 along with the following gallery comments:

Robert Root is indelibly associated with Shelbyville, IL but made frequent trips to Brown County with fellow Eastern Illinois artist Paul Turner Sargent. There he enjoyed the collegiality of the Nashville art scene as can be seen in the 1927 Frank Hohenberger photo (below). Much of Root’s output was watercolor and pastel. Over the Hill to the River (1922) is a somewhat rare oil example and a beautiful rendering of an apparently familiar Root painting spot. This same scape, featuring a couple maples and fencerow appears in other works by Root. The artist’s tonalist skills are showcased with his beautiful treatment of light dancing on the autumn landscape. The painting is in pristine condition with no in-painting, it’s been cleaned and revarnished and it’s housed in a handmade period reproduction frame (our work) and hand-leafed and finished to be sympathetic to the beautiful painting. An historically significant painting by one of Nashville’s orbit of early artists.
