3 William Edward Norton Oil On Canvas Figure Studies


Three oil on canvas figural studies by celebrated American marine artist William Edward Norton (1843-1916), each featuring a male figure in shades of blue, grey, taupe and black, on a white field, certainly preparatory studies for inclusion in a larger harbor scene composition. Signed (probably posthumously) lower left 'W.E. Norton Atelier'. Biographical Information on the artist: William Edward Norton (18443-1916) was born in Boston to a family of shipbuilders, where, from a young age, he was drawn to the sea. After studying with master landscape painter, George Inness, and then in Paris with Antoine Vollon, Norton opened a studio in London where he specialized in marine paintings and enjoyed a successful career. He returned to the United States in 1902 and continued his successful career as a member of prestigious art clubs in Boston, Connecticut and New York. William Edward Norton won recognition and accolades at, among other venues, the Columbian Exposition in Chicago, the Paris Salon, where he won an honorable mention, the Royal Academy, London, the Boston Athenaeum and the National Academy of Design.
