Thomas R. Curtin (American, 1899-1977) - Farm in Autumn. Oil on linen canvas. Circa 1960's. Painting size: 24 inches X 30 inches. Signed by the artist in lower left. A striking example of Thomas Curtin's landscape painting - a northern Vermont farm and barns nestled in the hills of the Green Mountains during the peak of the fall foliage season. 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.' Excellent as found condition. Offered in the original silvered weathered wood frame.
