“Painterly” may be too mild a word for the wonderful assortment of scrapings, scumbling, smearing and loaded brush dabbing and scrubbing that make this smoky 1909 cityscape by American painter Colin Campbell Cooper such a visual treat.

  1. “Visual treat” is an excellent description! The painting has the overall feeling that it was fun to paint, even with the accurate drawing and masterfully controlled pallet.

    Thanks for the viewing, Charley.
