Title: In a Summer Garden
Year: 1940s
Media: Oil on Masonite, 22 x 38 inches
Provenance: Capehart Collection
Description: Signed at lower left: “Hobson Pittman”

This painting was part of the Capehart Collection of more than fifty works inspired by musical compositions. Homer Capehart, a leader of the radio and phonograph industry and a U.S. senator from Indiana, commissioned most of the paintings during the 1940s, many through the Philadelphia advertising agency N. W. Ayer & Sons, Inc. Works by Philadelphia artists Morris Blackburn (1902-1979) and Franklin Watkins (1894-1972) were also in the collection. After Capehart’s business was sold, the collection became the property of Miss Sherry Britton, an entertainer well-known for her work with the U.S.O. during World War II.
