About the work
The dark tones of the landscape, saturated sky colours and bright spots of the lanterns evoke the chilled atmosphere of a winter evening in small-town America. The skeletal outlines of trees frame the view. Rich blues and purples from a recent sunset fill the sky.
William S. Schwartz – a controversial artist
Schwartz was born in Belarus and emigrated to the United States in 1913. Studying at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago he also pursued opera singing as a potential career. His eventual concentration on art lead to a reputation as a somewhat scandalous figure with symbolist works and multiple nudes produced. Schwartz worked in the Federal Art Project during the Great Depression and produced many works featuring the countryside and ‘small-town’ American life. Winter Evening dates from early in this period. His use of bold design and flat colour is influenced by Gauguin and the fauvist coloring of Matisse.
Schwartz was a well-known figure in Chicago, mostly due to his memorable handlebar mustache and eccentric persona. His later career tended ever more to abstraction and his work is included in several major public and private collections.
