Description

This is a very pretty and large framed watercolor painting, by Pennsylvania artist R. Philip Custer. It was created in 1965 and is entitled ‘Homer Contemplating the Bust of Aristotle’. It shows a small bird (presumably, representing Homer) that is standing at the side of a sand dune and is gazing at a very large piece of driftwood (presumably, representing the bust of Aristotle). The driftwood’s image is so detailed that it looks like an amazing work of art. This painting was likely influenced by Rembrant’s 17th Century oil painting entitled ‘Aristotle Contemplating a Bust of Homer’, which has been widely interpreted to be an image of the wealthy philosopher and scientist who is gazing enviously at a bust of the poor blind bard. This watercolor painting is in various shades of brown, green, and blue. It is signed and dated by the artist, in the lower right corner. There is also a label affixed to the back of the painting that has the artwork’s title on it.

This framed painting is 26 3/4 inches (wide) by 22 1/8 inches (high).

The watercolor painting is in very good condition, with no stains or tears on the paper. The wood frame is also in very good condition, with a few extremely minor nicks/scratches. It is unvarnished and has a natural look that nicely complements the painting’s nature scene.
