“The play of soft colors drew me to this composition, as did the green-blue of the bottles, which reminded me of the color of the ocean’s waves as they overturn themselves on the nearby Maine coast.”

Contemporary realist John Whalley’s newest works are layered with connections and stories like this. To learn more, check out our website or stop by our gallery to see our upcoming exhibition, “The Hidden Hand,” when it opens this Saturday, May 18!

04/30/2019

We are so excited to see this old friend included in the Dixon Gallery & Gardens current exhibition ‘William McGregor Paxton and Elizabeth Okie Paxton: An Artistic Partnership!’ The show is “the first examination of the work of William Paxton in nearly four decades and is the first comprehensive study of Elizabeth Paxton and her career,” according to the Dixon’s press release. While Elizabeth Paxton painted many still lifes, this rare example by her husband is outside of his typical figural subject matter. Works by both Paxtons are on view in Memphis, TN until July 14!
.
🎨 Shown is ‘Still Life - Breakfast Tray’ by William M. Paxton, oil on Masonite, private collection.

04/22/2019

Happy Earth Day! 🌎 With so many talented landscape artists who shared an abiding passion for the natural world, picking just one to celebrate Earth Day is a challenge. This year, we’re featuring John White Allen Smith, who painted this scene of Wildcat Brook. In 1905, an unknown reporter commented on Scott’s affinity for the natural landscape: “All his art life he has striven to rob nature of her secrets in the mountains, in the meadows, in the woods, beside wild streams, quiet lakes and ponds.” While we may not think of artists as ‘robbing’ nature today, we can understand the writer’s desire to convey Scott’s attraction to the natural world. 🌳⛰🌾

🎨 Shown is ‘Wildcat Brook, Jackson, NH’ by Scott, detail and full image, oil on canvas, from Vose Galleries.

For the Throne.
.
Are you ready for the final season of Game of Thrones? We’d bet American artist N.C. Wyeth would have been a fan, based on his affinity for fantasy scenes like these. While the illustrations depict various moments from the tales of King Arthur, we couldn’t help seeing hints of Westeros. For more information on N.C. Wyeth, check out the catalogue raisonee of his works at the @brandywinerivermuseum, and don’t forget to tune in to HBO tonight!
.
🎨 Shown are ‘Title Page of The Boy’s King Arthur’ (detail), ‘King Mark Slew the Noble Knight Sir Tristram,’ and ‘The Lady Lyoness had the Dwarf in Examination’ by N.C. Wyeth, from Thomas Mabry’s “The Boy King Arthur,” 1922.

04/12/2019

Is there anything that says “spring” more than pastels? The season has us in the mood for the candy pinks, daffodil yellows, and pale blues resplendent in this interior scene by Ellen Day Hale. Sister of fellow artist Philip Leslie Hale, Ellen adopted many of his Impressionist leanings after his trips to Giverny at the end of the 19th century. Here, the loose brushwork and lighter palette are combined with a frequent theme in Boston School paintings: beautiful young women in lavish interiors. Take a look at the detail (second image) for a close-up of the blooming flowers over the fireplace! For more information on Hale, stop by our Newbury Street gallery or visit our website #linkinbio.

🎨 Shown is ‘Portrait of Mrs. Davenport, New York’ by Ellen Day Hale, 1893, pastel on pastel board, from Vose Galleries.

🐶 Breughel has perfected the art of “down, stay.” This intrepid German Shepherd accompanied contemporary realist painter Joel Babb during his many trips to the Nezinscot River in Turner, Maine, where he painted this scene and several other landscapes. Joel recalls, “[Breughel] always accompanied me and after a thorough exploration of the area from his doggish point of view would park himself in the shade of the umbrella to survey the scene while I was painting. I often took great pleasure in the thoroughness and happiness with which he explored the same scene I did...” To see more works by Babb, visit our website #linkinbio.

04/10/2019

Happy National Siblings Day! American painters and half-brothers John Ferguson Weir and Julian Alden Weir both found respite and inspiration at Julian’s farm in Branchville, Connecticut, as shown in both of these tranquil landscapes. The farm was also a gathering place for friends and notable artists, such as John Henry Twachtman. The brothers’ professional lives were further linked by their shared training under their father, Robert W. Weir. Though more than ten years younger, Julian did not linger in his brother’s shadow, and is remembered as one of the foremost American Impressionist painters, with works housed in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Art Institute of Chicago, among others.

🎨 Shown are ‘The Farm at Branchville’ by Julian A. Weir, oil on canvas; and ‘The Farm, Branchville, Connecticut’ by John F. Weir, oil on canvas, both from Vose Galleries.

🏛 We’re thrilled to see so many institutions participating in Slow Art Day 2019 - an event intended “[to] help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art.” Founded in 2009, Slow Art Day seeks to extend how long the average person spends looking at a work of art from 27 seconds (according to a study published in ‘Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity, and the Arts’ in 2017) to 10 minutes or more. Spend your Saturday lingering in some of these stellar collections, and check out @artnet for the full story: @artinstitutechi @clevelandmuseumofart @denverartmuseum @massmoca @stlartmuseum @philamuseum and more.

🎨 Shown is ‘Pichincha’ by Frederic Edwin Church, 1867, oil on canvas, from the collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and subject of the 2pm Spotlight Gallery Conversation.
