This mid century profile portrait of a man in blue was signed by its artist Jane Burkholder. Painted with oil on wooden framed canvas, the calming blues and greens of this painting provide a soft background for the casually-dressed central subject.
Alyce June Burkholder was born in Westerville, Ohio in 1892. She attended Ohio State University and went on to study art at the Fontainebleau School of Fine Arts in France. During her time there, she studied with the French Cubist and abstract painter Jacques Villon.
Upon her return to the United States, Alyce studied with painters V.J. Cariani and L.O. Griffith in Nashville, Indiana and Sister Rufinia in Lafayette, Indiana. She also studied with Arnold Turtle of Chicago, Robert Brackman of New York, and Jerry Farnsworth of Sarasota, Florida.
She participated in numerous exhibitions around Indiana, including the Hoosier Salon in Chicago, from 1938-41, and the Hoosier Salon in Indianapolis, from the early 1940s up until the late ‘60s. She was an accomplished painter, specializing in florals and still lifes in oil.
