John Whorf
Equinox Mountain, VT

$4,800

About

A fine winter landscape watercolor of Equinox Mountain in Vermont by American artist John Whorf (1903-1959). Whorf was born in Winthrop, Massachusetts and by the age of sixteen, he had begun studies in Provincetown with George Elmer Browne and Charles Webster Hawthorne who were, unarguably, the two formative teachers in Whorf's life. During his many visits to Paris, Whorf enhanced his training at Ecole Colarossi, Academie Julian, Ecole des Beaux Arts, and Academie de la Grande Chaumiere. He went on to hold over 32 annual exhibitions in Boston, but still traveling worldwide, with his focus changing from oil painting to watercolor in the 1920’s. He became known for his street landscapes, marine, and figure painting, receiving many honors and awards over his career, including he Logan Medal, awarded by the Art Institute of Chicago in 1928, and his honorary Master of Arts degree awarded by Harvard University in 1938, Whorf being the first contemporary painter to be so recognized. That same year, Whorf was one of only two Boston artists to be selected by the Museum of Modern Art for its exhibition in Paris. The following year, the Art Institute of Chicago again honored Whorf with a special exhibition of his watercolors, alongside collections by Edward Hopper and Henri Matisse. In 1947, Whorf was elected to the National Academy of Design and, in 1948, to the American Watercolor Society. Watercolor on paper, signed lower right, a Childs Gallery Boston label on verso, matted and framed under glass in a simple wooden frame. Dimensions: 21.25 in H x 28.5 in W, sight; 28.25 in H x 35.5 in W, framed. Ref:7
