We are offering a selection of works from The Personal Collection of Bob Timberlake
in our single-owner November sale. Like all of Timberlake's work, they celebrate the primacy of history, tradition, and an elemental enjoyment of the outdoors. In our recent Fall Estate Auction, Alabama artist Ronald Lewis applies the same clear-eyed focus that we see in Wyeth and Timberlake to his own paintings of quiet, quotidian landscapes. It is not hard to trace the influence of these artists on each other when contemplating their subdued, straighforward color palettes and clean compositions. All three of these artists found freedom in painting exactly what they saw, completely unadorned, because for them, this world was meaningful enough as exactly as it was.
