This Mosier painting was featured in our weekly email on 11/27/13 along with the following gallery comments:
We’ve seen very little work by Martha Hinkle Mosier and I regret this because there is a context void regarding how this piece squares with her overall output. The few other recorded examples are relatively uninspired and do not contain the ‘finished’ quality of Pioneer Cabin, Martinsville. Hinkle Mosier studied under Adolph Shulz and knowing that this piece was exhibited (Indiana University Art Exhibit, year unknown, original tag verso), I’ve always romanced the notion that Shulz was over her shoulder, providing guidance for a piece that was envisioned as a show entrant. Who knows the real story but it’s a wonderful example — bright, full of detail and representing a bold, painterly vision. The painting has been conserved, contains no re-touch and the original, lovingly re-leafed frame marries with it perfectly. Possibly the best darn Hinkle Mosier in existence here for your consideration.
