Why We Love It

Granville-Smith’s beautiful landscapes of the Long Island shore, specifically Bellport, are among his most popular and collectible works. His bravura brushwork and ability to capture the dazzling color and light of the landscape make this a quintessential American Impressionist painting.

The Value

Granville-Smith's landscapes of Bellport, Long Island, represent his best work; they also beautifully capture the spirit of American Impressionism. Sentinel Trees presents a unique buying opportunity. We purchased the painting very advantageously and are able to offer it well below its true market value. The work is in excellent, unlined condition and has an exceptional period frame that is probably original to the painting.
