Colorful scene of benches at lakeside, a breeze blowing through the trees and a small boat at sail. Apparently signed, but with the signature smudged. Richard Hayley Lever (1875–1958) was an Australian-American painter, etcher, lecturer and art teacher. He studied under James Ashton at his Norwood art school and was a member of the Adelaide Easel Club before emigrating to New York and later settling in Massachusetts. Lever taught at the Art Students League of New York. He is recognized today as a significant figure in 20th century American Impressionism. His works are included in the White House collection, the Hirschorn Museum, Brooklyn Museum of Art, Corcoran Gallery of Art, and many other distinguished collections. Label of Maxwell Galleries, San Francisco, on rear.
