The Curved Birch Tree

Signed: Carl C. Brenner/81 for Carl Christian Brenner (1838-1888)
Dated
Kentucky
Oil on Canvas

Brenner emigrated to the United States in 1853 and lived briefly in New Orleans before moving permanently to Louisville, KY. Well known for his landscapes, he usually included detailed views of the Cumberland Mountains and the rivers, forests, trees and parks around his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. Painting in the realist style, Brenner’s works also reflect his attention to shadow and mood.

His works are held in prominent American museums including: The Corcoran Gallery of Art,
Greenville County Museum of Art, The Morris Museum of Art, The Filson Historical Society, and The Speed Art Museum.

Why we love it:  Any time I can find a Brenner, I’m ecstatic.  This little painting really captures his talent, early in his career.
