Manufacturer: August Biehle

Artist: August Biehle


Description: Large August Biehle (American, Ohio, Cleveland, 1885 - 1979) oil on masonite featuring a farm house, plowed field and tree line done in his inimitable cloisonne’-cubist style.

He trainted with his father in Cleveland and in Germany on two occasions, lastly with the Royal Academy in Munich. Signed A.F. Biehle lower right and noted with Biehle’s name and address in Parma on the back. Sight size is 27 1/4 by 39 1/8 inches and overall size with naturally finished pine frame is 34 1/4 by 46 1/4 inches. Excellent condition with great color and design.
