Rhode Island Reds and a Red Barn (Ohio)

Original drawing in watercolor and gouache over traces of pencil, 1939, 254 x 355 mm. Neufeld was born in a village in southern Russia to a German-speaking, Mennonite family. He came to America with his family by way of Canada, fleeing the bloody aftermath of the Russian Revolution, and first saw the New World on a cold Christmas Eve in 1924. They settled in Waterloo and Neufeld painted the local scenes, achieving his first artistic success. Desire for more advanced study brought him to the Cleveland Art Institute in the Thirties. In the Forties he lived in New York City and extensively documented East River scenes, and in 1949 he settled in New Milford, Connecticut. Neufeld painted, both oils and watercolors, and made color linocuts with his own ingenious technique.
