OVERVIEW

  • Vintage item

Amy Ann Sadle, nationally known multi-media artist, was born in Iowa in 1940. She studied art at the University of Rhode Island and at the University of Iowa. Her instructors included such eminent artists as Fritz Eichenberg and Naoko Matsubura. Mrs. Sadle has been a professional art instructor and owned an art touring program for over 35 years in the Omaha area. She opened her gallery in Syracuse, Nebraska, in 1993 in what she terms her "golden years."

During Sadle's residency in 2001 at the KHN Center for the Arts in Nebraska City, she wrote and had published "Hunter Hall: A Historic Odyssey & Civil War Romance." One of her woodcuts is included in the 1998 book "The Book of Bad Things, Volume 2: Children" which is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Nebraska Art. Definitely a multitalented artist, she now resides in Ohio after closing her Nebraska studio and gallery.

Amy Sadle created this painting with tempera and India ink. Titled "The Window," it blends realism and Impressionism in her unique style, depicting a view into an apartment window with the darkened room beyond. Painted on a mat board, it is framed in a 3/4 inch wide wood frame in a medium brown tone. The framed measurements are 9 1/8 inches by 15 1/8 inches and the artwork weighs 1 1/2 pounds. It's signed in India ink lower right: © Amy A. Sadle. On the reverse is a COA completed and signed by her, showing, among other information, the date (1972) and her location at that time in Mitchell, Nebraska. (The measurements given on the COA are of the unframed mat board.)

The painting, frame and glass are all in very good condition, with the dust paper on the back partially torn but intact. This is a desirable early work of Amy Sadle's and a very evocative one.
