Paintbox Treasures: Holiday Gift Suggestions at Hawthorne Fine Art

40 Paintings priced between $2,500 - $7,500
November 15 – December 29, 2017

Hawthorne Fine Art is pleased to present Paintbox Treasures: Holiday Gift Suggestions,

an exhibition of nearly forty works from the collection.
The holiday exhibition revolves around the themes of love and beauty, highlighting works of art especially suited for giving.

Paintbox Treasures spans movements of American Art between 1820-1960, including Hudson River School, Tonalism, Impressionism, the Ashcan movement, and early Modernism. It highlights works that match both the winter season’s call for traditions and coziness, as well as our tendency to reminisce about warmer, brighter days soon to come. The exhibition takes its
name from the popular object that is, in a way, a treasure trove of yet to be made works of art.

From one simple paintbox, an abundance of creative, beautiful, transporting artworks can generated from the right hands – works much like the ones included in our holiday exhibition.

The exhibition also includes works by influential women artists including a portrait and landscape painting, “Miss Fidelia Bridges at Miss Brown’s, Canaan,” 1902 by Anna Mary Richards Brewster (1870—1952), a beautiful autumnal landscape painting by Catherine Newhall (1840-1917), and on of Josephine Walters’ (1837-1883) characteristic detailed studies of a natural scene.

Whether it is with exaltation of winter in New York or a quiet scene of a moment enwrapped in the American Landscape, Paintbox Treasures highlights works exceptional quality and priced enticingly. We invite you to partake in the joys of gifting by sharing a timeless painting with a loved one. All works subject to prior sale.
