oil on canvas
36 1/4 x 48 1/4 inches
Take a trip down the East River with award winning artist David Bareford in his newest painting, East River Idyll. The rich color harmonies and sense of the perfect moment captured in time are signatures of Bareford's highly sought after work. Best known for his New England maritime scenes East River Idyll is a rare subject for Bareford with its urban, New York, setting but is perhaps one of his most complex and accomplished paintings. East River Idyll skillfully instills the city with a sense of sparking calm and beautifully captures the New York skyline and surrounding landscape. 

Born in New Jersey, David Bareford moved to the renown artist colony of Rockport, Massachusetts after college, where he remains a member of the Rockport Art Association. Fascinated by watercolor as a student, Bareford achieved early success and his work was regularly shown in exhibitions of the American Watercolor Society, Allied Artists of America and the National Academy of Design. Eventually, he turned his attention to oil painting seeking to expand his vision and artistic expression. Bareford has achieved international recognition and is an elected member of many professional art organizations including the Copley Society and the American Society of Marine Artists.
