This painting was featured in our weekly email on 10/17/14 along with the following gallery comments:

Richard Brucker (R. B.) Gruelle was one of the Hoosier Group artists. The others being T.C. Steele, J. Ottis Adams, Otto Stark and William Forsyth. The moniker was coined based on their inclusion in the Indiana Pavilion at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exhibition in Chicago, representing the State in paintings. He and his family were in Indianapolis until moving to the East Coast around 1905. One of Gruelle’s boys, Johnny, went on to create, write and illustrate Raggedy Ann. Much of Gruelle’s output was gouache (watercolor with white applied) and here we have a nice example of that medium. Winter Sunset (our title) features a snowy road drawing one back to the beautiful glow of the setting sun. A very nice example with a somewhat rare winter setting from one of Indiana’s most important painters.
