c.1960s

About the Item

Beautiful mid century watercolor painting of a quaint white antiques barn with two trees in the front by listed artist Jon Blanchette (American, 1908-1987). Unframed. Unsigned but acquired with a collection of his work. Image size: 15"H x 22"W. Jon Blanchette was born in Somerset, England on March 29, 1908. He immigrated to Battle Creek, Michigan in 1918. Artistically inclined at age six, he later studied at the Pittsburgh Art Institute. In 1932 he and his wife Jean moved to Los Angeles where he painted, did architectural design, interior decorating, and stage sets for Fox Studios. In 1948 he abandoned commercial work and settled in Aptos (Seacliff Beach), California where he painted fine art and taught privately. During the summers of 1965-75 he held workshops in Mendocino. A romantic realist, he was primarily an oil painter but was also proficient with pen & ink, watercolor, and silk screen.
