Description:

William S. Robinson (American/Mississippi, 1861-1945), "Steamboat Landing, Natchez", 1943, oil on academy board, signed lower right, titled and dated "Jan 13-43" en verso, 9 1/8 in. x 13 1/4 in., attractively framed Note: William S. Robinson was an important member of the Old Lyme Art Colony in Lyme, Connecticut in the early 20th century. Following the death of patron Florence Griswold in 1937, Robinson left Old Lyme and relocated to Biloxi, Mississipp, at the recommendation of his friend, noted New Orleans artist William Woodward. He continued to create impressionistic landscapes, trading the Connecticut scenery for the charming images of shrimp boats and Southern shanties. The painting offered here, "Steamboat Landing, Natchez", is a muted, softly rendered view of a dock building along the banks of the Mississippi River with a steamboat underway on the left. Dating to 1943, this painting is a rare impressionist and documentary view of the river in Natchez during this time period.
