14280 Nantucket Watercolor by William Bartholomew

Product Description

This very fine water color of a Nantucket shoreline was painted by William N. Bartholomew. Signed and dated Nantucket 1891, lower left. Archivally framed, 8 in. x 16 in., sight.


William Newton Bartholomew (1822-1898) was born in Boston, where he became the first professor of drawing in the Boston public school system. After retirement he became an itinerant watercolorist in Vermont, and in the summers in Nantucket. His scenes of Nantucket , which he considered the "queerest and quaintest place in the wide wide world", are scarce. See: Michael Jehle, Picturing Nantucket.
