Description

Largely self-taught, C.S. Price moved from literal, illustrative paintings of the American West toward works that displayed his awareness of modernism but were shaped by his personal and intuitive response to the world around him. By 1918 he had moved to the San Francisco area and his paintings began to reflect his mature style. The Willow Tree, which dates from this formative period, accompanied Price when he moved to Portland in 1928. It bears all the hallmarks of Price's finest paintings: bold, often startling colors, confident handling of paint, and an assured compositional technique.
