This Davisson painting was featured in our weekly email on 5/2/14 along with the following gallery comments:
Homer Davisson attended Depauw and ultimately settled in the Fort Wayne area where he taught and painted countless works reflecting the Mississinawa Valley and surrounding countryside. He frequented Brown County and created a large body of work reflecting those storied painting grounds in addition to some early European paintings (generally watercolors). He was a near-constant exhibitor in the Hoosier Salon from 1925 to 1957, the year of his death. Walk Your Horses is a fun, breezy example of his output. The title is ours — the painting is untitled, verso. If you look at the loosely rendered admonition on the bridge, how could the title be anything else? The painting has been cleaned, re-varnished and is in excellent condition. It’s housed in a simple, gold period reproduction frame. A nice, affordable example from this early Hoosier artist.
