Hawthorne Fine Art is excited to announce it will participate in the upcoming Greenwich Antiques Show from November 30th to December 2nd at the Greenwich Civic Center in Connecticut. As a Manhattan-based gallery showcasing 19th and early 20th century American Art, Hawthorne Fine Art will exhibit works by Connecticut Impressionists like Clark Voorhees and Robert Vonnoh, as well as a large-scale exhibition piece by William Robinson. HFA will also exhibit the oil painting Apple Blossoms, Greenwich, CT by Mina Fonda Ochtman (1862-1924). This work by Ochtman, who attended the Art Students League with Kenyon Cox and was married to fellow Cos Cob Colony Impressionist Leonard Ochtman, depicts her Greenwich home, “Greyledge.” Featuring the homestead in springtime, Apple Blossoms was once part of both the Sellars Collection of American Women Artists and the Hunstville Museum of Fine Arts in Alabama.
Hawthorne’s booth at the Antiques Show will also feature artworks from the gallery’s current exhibition of historic female American Artists entitled, “Breaking All Bounds: American Women Artists (1825-1945).” This group exhibition, which is dedicated to the renowned Art Historian Linda Nochlin (1931-2017), demonstrates the diversity of American women academic artists. The artist Felicie Waldo Howell (1897-1968), for example, painted the impressionist work Red Cross Parade, NYC in 1917 of a fund-raising effort during World War I. The parade, comprised mostly of local women and children as well as an elephant and colorful flags, was likely organized by the Junior Red Cross members to raise money for the American and Allied forces.In another painting by Theresa Ferber Bernstein (1890-2002) titled New York Public Library, the artist provides a glimpse inside one of Manhattan’s greatest landmarks. To view the extraordinary works in the exhibition, visit the catalogue at Hawthorne Fine Art’s website.
“Breaking All Bounds: American Women Artists (1825-1945), An Exhibition and Sale” is available for view by appointment at 12 East 86th Street from November 1st, 2018 through January 11th, 2019.
