Horse Race Oil on Canvas by Helen Van Tempera
This fabulous oil on canvas by the Chicago area painter, Helen van Tempera, depicts three thoroughbred race horses locked in a tight race. We believe this work dates from the 1970s or 1980s. Signed by the artist in the lower right corner. Tempera is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and teaches oil painting at the Elmhurst (Illinois) Artists' Guild at the McCormick House in the Elmhurst Art Museum.
