Sun Lit Surf

Arthur F. Maynard (1920-1991) was an immensely talented artist and an inspirational teacher and beloved patriarch of the Ridgewood Art Institute. He held degrees from Princeton and Harvard, served in the Navy in World War II, and studied at the Art Students League with Frank Vincent DuMond for eight years.

He had a great interest in the principles of light and its effects on the landscape--a basic set of principles determined by distance, atmospheric conditions, the time of day and the nature of the object's reflective surface.

Throughout the Ridgewood Art Institute's many years in existence, many of Arthur Maynard's students have become noted painters and educators. Maynard stopped exhibiting when he started teaching because he did not want to compete with his students.  Consequently, very few of his works come to market.  

This oil painting on canvas unites a spectagular ocean scene with a dramatic surf pounding on a rocky shore highlighted by a sun lit sky.   Good condition.
