      Joseph Lambert Cain (American/New Orleans, 1904)

      Est: $10,000 - $15,000

      Joseph Lambert Cain (American/New Orleans, 1904-2003), "House with Four Gables", oil on masonite, signed lower right, "The Charleston Renaissance Gallery" label with artist and title on frame, 48 1/4 in. x 37 1/4 in., framed . Provenance: The Charleston Renaissance Gallery, Charleston, SC. Note: New Orleans-born Joseph Lambert Cain began his art career at the age of sixteen when he cut short his high school education to pursue studying drawing at the Chicago Academy of Fine Art as well as the Art Institute of Chicago. He would continue his artistic studies under the tutelage of Hans Hoffman and at such prestigious institutions as the Art Students League of New York and the Sorbonne. Cain often exhibited with his equally talented contemporaries such as Milton Avery, Adolph Gottlieb, and Max Weber, and he even formed “The Group” with them and several other artists including Mark Rothko and Hans Hoffman. Together they would gather and discuss art theory and modernism. In between his teaching jobs and mural commissions, Cain would return to the imagery of his native New Orleans, often painting in a much more representational style while utilizing vibrant colors to underscore the sense of vitality and vigor which he sought to capture in the city of his birth. In "House with Four Gables" offered here, the architecture of the house is both highlighted and obscured by Cain's masterful use of expressive line. Ref.: Cain, Peter Michael.
