George Elbert Burr

First offering of a rare

artwork by George Elbert Burr,

from his highly acclaimed oeuvre

of European scenes.

A compelling narrative Imbued with

precise delicacy and

elegance—hallmarks of Burr’s

mature art—brought to life

the timeless charm of Italy,

of a way of life lived

in continuity for centuries

unaffected by time.

Layered, complex, and nuanced,

Burr rendered

such compelling narrative

through harmonization

of precise details

and compositional elements

such as the flower stalls

and their canopies,

with atmospheric setting

bathed in a soft light, an observation

he brilliantly captured.

His adeptness at combining

architectural observation

and atmospheric perspective

with a variety of timeless qualities

like color and textures

is demonstrated in this depiction.

Burr’s unique style infused the scene

with vitality and timeless charm,

which indeed is reminiscent

of a way of life

lived in continuity for centuries.
