HUGH EDWARD WELLER
“South Park”, ca. 1930 | 24x30 - oil on canvas
Hugh Weller painted a farm scene in South Park, Colorado in a personal style that combines elements of Cubism and Modernism. The angular forms of the farmland, foothills, and trees are arranged in a balanced formal setting that contrasts with the representational, or traditional forms of the barn and silo. The colors of gold, dark green, pale blue and brown are chosen for dramatic effect.
