Take note: This impressionist gem is an important small sized work by this talented Canadian artist, painted somewhere in the late 1940's or early 1950's at the height of his artistic career. It is set within an authentic hand-carved and gilded frame that is, in it's own realm, a fine collectible piece. The setting of this painting is one of the many quaint side streets in the artist's colony in Gloucester, Mass., where numerous Canadian artists visited and joined other fellow artists in painting the local picturesque village scenes.

Robert Lee Chadwick

Robert was born in Heywood, Lancashire, England in 1905 and immigrated to Canada in 1919 with his parents.

Robert worked in oils and watercolours and painted a wide variety of subjects including scenes of rural Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes. He also travelled across Canada and into the United States where he painted in Gloucester, Mass., along with many of his fellow contemporary artists, as did numerous other Canadian artists during the early part of the 20th century.

Although he was not a member of any artist's associations he did exhibit with the RCA and the OSA between 1940 and 1950 at numerous art showings and was known to collaborate with many other well noted artists during this painting career.

Robert Chadwick passed away in 1971.
