The Estate of the late Frank Daniels, Jr. and his wife Julia Jones Daniels, Raleigh, North Carolina. A portion of the sale proceeds will be donated to the North Carolina Museum of History Foundation

Born in Iredell County in North Carolina's western Piedmont, Danny Robinette was primarily a self-taught artist. He reveled and excelled at depicting North Carolina landscapes with a quiet intensity of light and color. The flat surfaces skillfully painted invite the viewer into the artist's world, one with evidence of human experience but lacking a depiction of any sentient beings.

In his artist statement for Somerhill Gallery, Danny Robinette describes his work as: "Significant art is built upon the past and what I produce has been influenced by the second-generation Hudson River School, the Barbizon School, Dutch and Pop Vanitas still-life, and the works of Rene Magritte."

Robinette's work has been exhibited extensively, including shows at the Hickory Museum of Art, Elon College, and the Greenhill Center for NC Art, North Carolina; and the National Arts Club in New York.

Very good estate condition.
