Albert Nemethy Putnam County Covered Bridge Painting


This oil on canvas is from listed American artist, Albert Nemethy, whose fame is primarily his portraits of ships but he also painted landscapes – largely of or inspired by the Hudson River Valley.

This painting depicts a landscape including one of Vermont’s famous covered bridges and a tranquil fy-fisher casting about for trout.

Albert has three children who are also accomplished artists and who focus on maritime themes in their paintings in one way or another, most often. The family is known for having high attention to detail in their works and use of bright colors. This is no exception.

Art size is 12” x 18”. Framed size is 21” x 27”. Painted in 1976 with signed initials and handwritten details on back. Obtained from auction which obtained directly from the Nemethy family.
