New Deal Art: "Resurrection"
Above: "Resurrection," an oil painting by George Henry Melcher (1881-1957), created while he was in the WPA, ca. 1939-1940. Melcher painted several nice landscapes while in the WPA. "A master of color, composition and technique, he captured on canvas the beauty of southern California and the timelessness of nature" (George Stern Fine Arts).
