Description Stunning and atmospheric classic New York winter scene by noted Austrian-born, American artist Bela de Tirefort. Bela de Tirefort was known for his stunning New York scenes, mostly painted on sight, leaving us with an enduring record of the metropolis between the 1930s and ’50s. This piece is an excellent example of his on sight paintings of a hansom carriage in Central Park in New York City at twilight in the snow. Oil on artist board and signed lower right. Circa 1940. Condition is good. No restorations. Framed with custom gold gallery frame 23 by 27 inches overall.

Bela de Tirefort was born in 1894 in Austria, painted in New York City, and retired to St. Petersburg, Florida. He was known for his striking New York City scenes. Using muted tones, strong silhouettes, and incisive textures, his paintings capture the structure of the city in the decades between the Great Depression, the Second World War, and the growth of the New York art scene. He often depicted the areas surrounding the Flatiron Building, Broadway, and the New York Harbor and sold many of his paintings directly from Washington Square. He died in 1993.
