Joseph Rusling Meeker (American, 1827-1889), "Bayou Field with Campsite at Dusk under a Crescent Moon", 1885, oil on canvas laid on masonite, signed and dated lower left, "Saint Louis Art Museum" label with title en verso, 13 5/8 in. x 23 5/8 in., framed. Provenance: Ex-collection of the Saint Louis Art Museum, St. Louis, MO. Note: Landscape painter Joseph Rusling Meeker is known for his panoramic views of Louisiana bayous and detailed depictions of moss-laden cypress trees. The work offered here is a sublime example of a Meeker landscape, unique in the lexicon of the artist’s oeuvre. A group of hunters rests at the end of a ridge in the middle of a bayou, contemplating the sunset and fiery clouds - indicative of Meeker’s finest work.
