Additional Details

Looking past the poignant subject matter, the cowboys celebrating Christmas, you can see the influence of Roberts’s favorite painters, Rembrandt and Van Gogh. Rembrandt is in the warmly lit interiors and the domestic compositions; Van Gogh is in the construction of the rooms, in the rustic boards and walls that play with perspective to frame the scenes. This lot is illustrated in The Story of Leanin' Tree on page 124 and 366. A copy of the Leanin’ Tree greeting card that features this art work will accompany this lot.
