About The Artist:

Joseph Tomanek was born in Czechoslovakia in 1889. After attending art school in Prague, the artist immigrated to America in 1910. He settled in Indiana and Illinois, and worked as an interior decorator before going back to school at the Art Institute of Chicago, where he exhibited his works between 1919 and 1931. Works by Tomanek are held by numerous American institutions including the Indianapolis Museum of Art, where the painting entitled ''Milking Time'' resides.
The artist is known for his paintings of attractive nudes in beautiful settings, which he painted from life. Tomanek's marine paintings, incorporating rocks at the edge of the sea or lake, were regarded as particularly beautiful examples of the artist's work. This oil on canvas painting depicts two beautiful young women on the rocks of a lakeshore at sunset. The lake is probably Lake Michigan, or another lake in the Midwest region. Tomanek had a second home in Odgen Dunes, Indiana, a vacation community on the shore of Lake Michigan, where he was known to have models pose for his paintings. The painting is framed in a simple period silver-gilt frame.
