George Cherepov beachscape oil on canvas mid-century
George Cherepov (1909-1987) was born in Lithuania and moved to America in 1952, ultimately settling in Greenwich, CT. He was known for painting an exceptionally broad range of subjects. Cherepov was a vigorous painter, finely attuned to nature with a highly developed sensitivity for mood, color and composition. In 1971 he authored "Discovering Oil Painting" and coauthored "The Oil Painting Book" through Watson-Gupthill NY. This lovely painting, showcasing a wonderful light effect on the clouds and surf, measures approx 26 x 50 inches unframed but comes to you beautifully framed as shown.
