Wonderful oil painting of figures relaxing on the beach in Maine. The painting is nicely framed and signed "Carleton" in the bottom right corner.
Born in Atkinson, New Hampshire, Anne Carleton became known for her paintings of beach scenes and objects in nature, and her goal was to have an independent style. She was also an art teacher and positions included the Woodbury Summer School in Ogunquit, Maine, and from 1913 taught in the public schools in Lynn, Marblehead, and Needham, Massachusetts. She began art studies at the Massachusetts Normal Art School in Boston. Charles Woodbury had the most influence on her painting, teaching her broad brush strokes to achieve movement and depth. From 1927 to 1929, she took his summer classes in Ogunquit, Maine, and she also taught classes with him. She painted the beaches and coastal areas of Maine and achieved a unique impressionism. Frequent painting companions were Gertrude Fiske, Jane Peterson, and Mabel Woodward. Provenance: From a Private Collection.
