Aldro Thompson Hibbard Art

American, 1886-1972
Born in Falmouth, Massachusetts, Aldro Hibbard was an Impressionist landscape painter much concerned with light and shadow. He was one of the founders of the Rockport Art Colony, and the Rockport Art Association now occupies his former studio. Hibbard grew up in Dorchester and Boston and spent much time in the summers in Boston and Cape Cod. He showed early artistic talent, an interest he shared with a life-long love of baseball, which led to his becoming a professional baseball player. For his art training, he graduated from the Massachusetts Normal School and studied at the Boston Museum School with Edmund Tarbell, Joseph DeCamp, and Frank Benson. In Boston from 1927 to 1929, he occupied Fenway Studios. Hibbard won the Paige Traveling Scholarship to study abroad, though his travels were cut short by War Word I , and he returned to America in 1914. In the early 1920s, he became a summer resident of Cape Ann and wintered in Jamaica, Vermont in the West River Valley. There he painted many rural snowscenes including oxen pulling wagons, covered bridges, and sugar houses . Much of his large body of work, concerned with light and shadow, depicts Vermont landscape, New England coastlines, and the Canadian Rockies. From 1915, he was also an instructor in the Art Department of Boston University.

Coming In & Going Out ( Plein Air Landscape painting green yellow colors)
By Jane Chapin
Located in Cody, WY
This is a 'Plein Air" landscape Painting by Jane Chapin as seen in the viewing room exhibition on Silas VON MORISSE GALLERY. “Plein-Air” is the French expression to describe the act of painting in situ within the landscape, capturing the ever changing weather and light with tonal qualities, colour, loose brushwork and softness of form... The practice of “Plein Air Painting” goes back for centuries but was truly made into an art form by the French Impressionists such as Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Alfred Sisley, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir who were advocating of plein air painting. Much of their work was done outdoors in the diffuse light of a large white umbrella. Another major proponent of Plein Air was Jean Baptiste Camille Corot whom Claude Monet considered as “The only One Master here”. Corot provides a transition from the sharp academic style that ruled in his day with focus on the natural world and the lyrical expressiveness of one's work. With her "Plein Air Paintings", Jane Chapin is part of one of the largest art movements in history. Her paintings carry human emotions. We can read her moods and feelings with places that carry deep remembrances for the artist that go beyond the descriptive. "My paintings grow from observing and interpretating light as it emerges from, surrounds and reflects on everyday people and scenes. They seek to remind us of the beauty of our common surroundings, regardless of where we are." - Jane Chapin Jane Chapin Painting the Land of the Free...

Vermont Farm in Winter, Aldro Hibbard, New England Impressionist Snow Landscape
By Aldro Thompson Hibbard
Located in New York, NY
Aldro Thompson Hibbard (1886 - 1972) Vermont Farm in Winter Oil on canvas 24 x 30 inches Signed lower left Provenance: Private Collection, Newburyport, Massachusetts Shannon's, Fine Art Auction, September 17, 2020, Lot 198 A product of two Capes, born on Cape Cod and matured as an artist on Cape Ann, Aldro Hibbard became the spiritual center of this artists’ community. Hibbard was the consummate outdoorsman, capturing the deep frigid snows of Vermont or maintaining a .300-plus batting average in the North Shore baseball leagues. Like George Bellows, Hibbard had to choose between professional baseball and art. He attended the school at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, where he was instructed by Frank Weston Benson, Phillip Leslie Hale and Edmund Charles Tarbell, who were instructors in the new school of American Impressionism at that time. Hibbard rejected the confines of his studio, despite the observation by his teacher Joseph DeCamp, the great impressionist Boston School portrait painter, that the young student made figure painting “look too easy.” In later years, writers referred to Hibbard as “the dean of the Frozen River School” and the artist soon to replace Gardner Symons and Edward Redfield as the leading interpreter of winter. He traveled to Europe in 1914 and was friendly with the great Joachim Sorolla in Spain, where they agreed that outdoor painting was where real painting occurred (the studio was “good for smoking in”). Hibbard had long been interested in snow-covered landscapes, submitting one of his earliest, February Thaw, to the National Academy. He acknowledged a debt to the winter landscapes of Willard Metcalf, specifically the technique of creating a veil of delicately-toned colors, one placed next to another, to describe light and shadow on snow. In his early canvases, Hibbard practiced a similar technique that produced a delicate pointillist feeling, which he called “broken color.” Equally important was Metcalf’s practice of painting outside in the middle of winter; Hibbard’s snow scenes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains painted during his honeymoon in 1925, as well as his Vermont scenes, attest to his love for painting in harsh conditions. Hibbard often trekked many hours before finding his ideal subject matter under the right conditions. By the 1930s, Hibbard spent winter months in Vermont, and the rest of the year in Rockport, where he established the Rockport Summer School of Drawing and Painting and grew to become a legendary member of the North Shore artist colony and even the Rockport baseball team. Each spring, Hibbard was responsible for choosing the exact shade of red that the town would paint the fishing shack commonly referred to as Motif #1. A leader in this community, he was also active in nearby Boston, and in 1965 the Guild of Boston Artists, where Hibbard had exhibited for 45 years, mounted a retrospective exhibition of his work. About the exhibition, R. H. Ives Gammell (a leading teacher of the Boston School of painters) commented: “Paintings by Aldro T. Hibbard recall the artistic standards for which the Boston painters were nationally known throughout the first quarter of our century. The exhibition...includes many of the artist’s finest landscapes which are of a quality no painter now living, here or abroad, could remotely approach.” Hibbard influenced Rockport artists including Emile Gruppe, Tom Nicholas...
