Thomas R. Curtin painting - Vinalhaven Cove, Maine
Thomas R. Curtin (American, 1899-1977) painting of the cove at Vinalhaven, Maine. Oil on canvas. Circa 1940s. Signed by artist in lower right. Canvas size: 24 inches x 30 inches. Condition: excellent, and recently professionally restored and cleaned. Offered in a 19th century gilded frame. This early work by Thomas Curtin depicts dinghies in the harbor of the picturesque village of Vinalhaven as it appears in autumn. Curtin was born in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. He studied at the prestigious National Academy of Design and Art Students League, both in New York City. Here Curtin found a mentor and friend in the artist John Carlson by whom he was greatly influenced. Curtin spent much time painting on Cape Ann in the coastal communities of Gloucester and Rockport, and he became affiliated with the North Shore Artists Association, where he became friends with Emile Gruppe and Aldro Hibbard. Beginning in the mid-1940s, Curtin began to spend part of his summers in Vinalhaven, the legendary island of painters on the coast of Maine. In 1957, Curtin moved to Cambridge, Vermont, where he continued his landscape painting 'en plein air.'
