About the event
HHS presents one of our scheduled programs via Zoom: Doug Noble's slide show of The Brushians, a renowned 19th century landscape artists' group in the Portland area, which included famed architect John Calvin Stevens. Doug presents a snapshot of each of the Brushians, their lives, their day jobs, their paintings, and their friends, which included one woman artist.
The presentation will last 45 minutes to one hour with an opportunity for audience questions at the end.
Doug Noble will present an overview of the Portland painter’s group known as the Brushians, founded in 1860. The Brushians were a group of sixteen or so men that included Portland artists Charles F. Kimball, George F Morse and John Calvin Stevens, painter, and architect. The group painted landscapes together, mostly in the greater Portland area and sometimes in the White Mountains. Though consisting of men, the group had friends, one of whom was a woman. Doug will profile the group and friends and show their works of art.
Doug lives in Portland and has a great interest in history. His family has been associated with Baldwin and Hiram for generations.
