Aldro T Hibbard

Boston, Rockport, MA, Vermont

This is an original oil on canvas board painting by American artist Aldro T Hibbard.  This painting identified on the back as "Painted at Welles River, N.H. Mt Moosilauke in the distance, Painted by A.T. Hibbard N.A."  The painting measures 18X26 inches and is signed lower left.  This painting came to us with the original Sales receipt from 1967 when the former owner purchased this painting directly from Hibbard.

  "Aldro T. Hibbard was born August 25, 1886 in Falmouth, Massachusetts, and died in Rockport, Massachusetts November 12, 1972.  He studied at the Massachusetts Normal Art School (1909), the Massachusetts College of Art; and at the Boston Museum School through 1913 with Edmund C. Tarbell, Frank W. Benson, Leslie P. Thompsen, Joseph R. DeCamp and Philip Hale at Boston's Museum School.  Because he showed such talent the Boston Museum faculty gave Hibbard a Paige Traveling Scholarship (1913-1915) to study abroad. He was a Founding Member and Director of the Rockport Art Association (MA) Summer School of Drawing and Painting (1921-1928), which later became The Hibbard School of Painting."
He is best known for his post-impressionistic winter landscapes of New England.
