$44,000

About

An impressionist winter landscape of Rockport in winter by American artist William Lester Stevens (1888-1969). Born in Rockport, Massachusetts, Stevens first studied with Parker Perkins and then attended the Boston Museum School as a student of William Tarbell, Frank Benson, Philip Hale, and William Paxton. He taught at Princeton and Boston Universities, and by 1964, had won more awards than any other living artist. Stevens, along with his friend Aldro Hibbard, was instrumental in organizing the Rockport Art Association in 1921, and was also a member of the Boston School, traditionalists and impressionists, opposed to the abstraction of art. He became well known for his landscapes, views of everyday life, and portraits. Aldro Hibbard painted this same winter view of Rockport, and it can be found in the Smithsonian collection in Washington, DC. Oil on canvas, signed and dated 1922 lower right, and framed in a beautifully decorated giltwood frame. Dimensions: 42 in H x 48 in W, actual; 54.5 in H x 60.75 in W, framed.
