Alphaeus Philemon Cole
Portrait of Eugene Higgins, Age 80.



Portrait of Eugene Higgins, Age 80. 1954. Oil on canvas. 30 x 25 (framed 35 x 30). Signed and dated, lower right. Cole and Higgins (1874-1958), both lived in Lyme, Connecticut. Higgins is posed informally, wearing ordinary clothes, seated in an old chair, smoking his pipe. This is delightful portrait of a friend by a friend. Cole was born in Jersey City, New Jersey. His father was Timothy Cole (1852-1931), the noted wood engraver. After graduating from college, Cole journeyed to London to begin a career in the arts. In the mid-1890s, he began to produce many vibrant works, mostly various still lifes and portraits. In 1901, some of Cole's artwork displayed at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York. Alphaeus Cole was a portraitist and still life painter, teacher, illustrator and writer. His preferred media were oil and watercolor.
