Sell Your Milford Zornes art
Here is a piece of Milford Zornes art we have sold in the past:
Milford Zornes 1951 “Oak Tree”
“Oak Tree,” 1951 painting by California artist Milford Zornes. Mixed media painting using watercolor, pastel and charcoal. Signed and dated to lower left, “Zornes 51.” An Oklahoma native who moved west during the Dust Bowl years, Zornes became part of the resurgence of water color painting in California. After graduating from the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles, he studied the medium with Millard Sheets. Later, along with Sheets and Phil Dike, Zornes founded the California Watercolor Society, a group that explored the blossoming urban atmospheres of California as well as the state’s varied desert, mountain and coastal landscapes. The artists’ innovations in scope and vocabulary gave the medium of watercolor renewed currency with art collectors and institutions in the 1920s and 30s. Zornes became one of the most successful of the group’s members, and the most visible envoy of the growing watercolor movement. In 1933, the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. sponsored a one-man show of his work, which led to President Franklin D. Roosevelt selecting a painting for display in the White House. Zornes’ paintings are characterized by their broad brush strokes and often grand scale. This piece, a close up view of a gnarled California oak tree, displays Zornes’ talent with mixed media as well as his effective use of unpainted white space to set off the painting’s central image. Measures 29.5″ x 21″; framed, 39″ x 31.5″. The painting has been mounted on matting and framed. Canvas shows some minor edgewear. Frame is sans glass. A beautiful piece from this notable California artist. Excellent condition. Sold for $1,679.
