A fine pair of marine paintings featuring boats in the fog by American artist Frederick Usher De Voll (1873-1941). De Voll was Born in Providence, Rhode Island, and was a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design (1896). He went on to study at the Art Student’s League with W.M. Chase and Robert Henri. DeVoll is best known for his paintings of New York street and harbor scenes. He would travel to the empire city, huddling along its doorways and riding the Staten Island Ferry to capture the city from the perspective of its everyday inhabitants. He found beauty among the busy farmers market, looming bridges and evening skyline. Devoll received the Silver Medal in 1915 at the Panama-Pacific Exposition at San Francisco. His works are in museum collections such as RISD and at the Delgado Museum in New Orleans. He was a member of a number of fine art institutions including the Providence Art Club, the Providence Water Color Club, the Springfield Art Association and the American Artists Professional League.
