Beach Fires - Charles Woodward Hutson

One of Hutson's more mysterious paintings. The beach appears to be aflame with a series of small fires. His composition is sharply divided between the overcast sky, the shoreline, beach and a line of brilliant blue trees. His brushstrokes are fluid and the paint is loose with a fine scumble.

Charles Hutson was a fascinating painter and a leader in the New Orleans art scene during the Roaring Twenties.
