Marion Barstow Huse (1896 - 1967)  Artworks >>

A printmaker, painter, and commercial artist, Marion Huse created work that ranged from realism to abstraction and included portraits, figure subjects, landscapes, and floral still lifes. She traveled widely throughout New England, New York, Quebec, Europe, and the Western United States. She was also an innovative serigrapher, and her serigraphs and monographs were exhibited widely including a major exhibition at the Brockton Art Museum (now Fuller Craft Museum) in Massachusetts in 1985. The Museum owns a large collection of work by the artist. Huse was born in Lynn, Massachusetts, and studied in Boston from 1915 to 1919 at the New School of Design, and from 1919 to 1921 at the Carnegie Institute in Pittsburgh. She also studied plein-air painting during the 1920s in Provincetown with Charles Hawthorne at the Cape Cod School of Art. In 1925, she founded the Springfield, Massachusetts School of Art, where she taught and was administrator until 1940. She was a WPA artist during the Depression years, and had a summer studio in Pownal, Vermont, where she eventually settled permanently. Source askart.com
