FRANCIS AUGUSTUS SILVA PAINTINGS FOR SALE & BIOGRAPHY

FRANCIS AUGUSTUS SILVA

American, 1835-1886

BIOGRAPHY
In an essay on American Luminism from 1978, Professor William Gerdts classified Silva as "one of an increasing number of engaging painters who are beginning to emerge as delightful mid-century landscape specialists who adopted luminist effects to good advantage...  Silva seems to have lived a tranquil, uneventful life, producing marine and coastal views from the Chesapeake Bay to New England, combining a clarity of form somewhat akin to Lane's with an intensity of light that is related to Gifford" (William H. Gerdts, American Luminism, exhibition catalogue, Coe Kerr Gallery, New York, 1978, p. 9).
