Painting is probably of the High Sierra Mountains with snowy peaks - a. And subject matter that Mr Barrett loved to paint and represented amazingly well.This piece came from the second owner of this gem as I just gleaned it from a private collection who's owner had it over 50 years. Sadly he had no title or location but this is not out of the norm of Barretts California paintings. Seems like the perfect piece to be sitting over the fireplace in the TV show Ponderosa or Big Valley!! And frankly, thats where it belongs.
In a beautiful western Ranch, Ranch home or even back east in one of those fantastic hunting lodge setting. Or over any fireplace mantle in any home with a western style. These big painting are very scarce, especally by listed artist specialists! Thanks for checking out my Auctions and PLEASE, check out and see the other cool stuff I have listed currently!
