The Meeting Place by John C. Pellew
The Meeting Place, 1973, John C. Pellew
John C. Pellew (1903-93) was an award-winning English-born artist, who lived and painted in Connecticut. His favorite subjects included New England landscapes - particularly, boating scenes. His work often focused on man's relationship with nature, contrasting the small figures of humanity with the immense landscape.
This image is unique amongst his works as it shows a figure up close rather than at a distance. The woman leans casually against a tree. The title The Meeting Place implies that an unseen friend - perhaps the audience - is coming to join her in the secluded and peaceful forest, emphasizing the importance of nature for human connection and spiritual completion.
This is an original 20th-century painting, done in oil on masonite panel.
