Description: Charles Wellington Boyle (American/Louisiana, 1861-1925), "Near Lewisburg, LA", 1902, oil on canvas, signed and dated lower right, 18 in. x 29 in., original frame with brass title plaque. Provenance: Malcolm Baird Wright, brother of New Orleans educator Sophie Bell Wright; by descent to Barbara Colvert Wright. Note: Charles Wellington Boyle painted this idyllic Louisiana landscape near his home in Lewisburg, on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain. Painted in his mature style, with impressionist brush work and a vivid palette, Boyle depicts the sandy shore of the lake on a calm day as a figure with a net hunts for crabs. A grove of cypress of trees anchors the large composition on the right as the lakeshore strewn with debris and barren tree roots curves to the left. A vivid blue sky is reflected in the lake waters. Boyle’s home in Lewisburg was a turn-of-the-century gathering place for artists such as Ellsworth and William Woodward, Alexander Drysdale and Andres Molinary.
