This Marie Goth painting was featured in our weekly email on 8/8/14 along with the following gallery comments:
After returning from New York where she studied under the renowned Frank DuMond at the Art Students League, Marie Goth was briefly back home in Indianapolis and in 1923 moved to Brown County where she spent the rest of her life. She was largely a portrait artist and painted many sitting Indiana governors in addition to the well-placed and well-to-do across the state and beyond. As a result of being a portraitist, there don’t exist many landscapes and still lifes — which were typical output for almost every other Brown Country artist. Here on offer is one of those relatively scarce non-portraits, Still Life with Roses. A lovely, soft composition rendered in a loose and sympathetic style. The painting is clean and ready to hang. It’s housed in a vintage Brown County frame not original to the piece. In fact, this frame had been on an Ada Shulz we sold years ago (I don’t believe it was original to the Ada either). Beautiful painting and fun, period frame married together for your approval.
