Just added, two new Robert Loftin Newman oil paintings. Newman is a very unique American artist born in 1827 and died in 1912. He is often compared to American icon Albert Pinkham Ryder but Newman was Ryder’s senior and biographical information confirms Newman was an established artist visited by Ryder – most likely the inspiration and influence traveled from Newman to Ryder. They painted a triptych together in 1898. Interested collectors and historians should obtain a copy of the 1974 book published by the Smithsonian in conjunction with the museum exhibition (by Marchal Landgren). It has much detailed history and many wonderful images on this great American artist. Note the Madonna and Child painting listed for sale here was in that very exhibition 40 years ago!
