Alexander Calder's "The Palm Tree", (1947) has an understated beauty and brings to life Calder's mastery of the oil paint medium.  The present work is registered with the Alexander Calder Foundation under number #A08381.  This painting was acquired directly from Perls Galleries in New York in 1974. Perls was one of the primary dealers of Calder's work.  The painting has never been to auction and has remained in the same private collection since 1974.

Andrew Wyeth is considered among the preeminent representational painters of the 20th century. Born in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, Wyeth drew his subject matter from the world around him: the interiors and exteriors of the stone buildings, mills, and farms of the Brandywine River countryside, and in the summers, the clapboard houses and stark landscape of the Maine coast. 
<br>
<br>In this full-sheet watercolor, “Star Route” (1977), Wyeth depicted a house on the road to East Friendship, Maine, not far from his own summer residence. While relying on keen visual observation, he pared down the elements of a composition to their most essential, giving his works an abstracted quality and imbuing them with a sense of quietude and stillness.

Peaks of St. Gervais is one of the artist’s classic landscapes, with his distinctive swift brushstroke and charming town and structures — half of which he rendered in the shade — dwarfed by the snow-capped mountain. In most of his paintings, Payne used structures and figures not as subject, but to communicate the dramatic scale of mountain landscape. Drawn to the mountains of Europe, Payne trekked and painted the Swiss Alps, the colorful harbors of Brittany and France, and the sailing vessels in Italy.
