Paul Turner Sargent of Charleston, IL began painting in Brown County, IN around 1920. He was impressed by the strength of the colony’s movement and was one of many artists who ‘adopted’ Brown County as a favorite painting spot. Sargent’s works often reflect straight-up nature with little to no indication of man’s influence. Here we have a gentle, colorful landscape created in 1930. The painting is not titled nor is the location noted — Charleston or Brown County, take your pick. The painting was recently cleaned and conserved – it contains no in-painting and it’s housed in the original, hand-carved frame which is unrestored and very cute. A wonderful little ‘gem’ by an artist who fell under the spell of Brown County.
