A fine landscape with a house on Nantucket by American artist Barbara Brown Frazier (1914-1988). Barbara grew up in Amesbury, MA and made a reputation as a teen as a portrait artist who studied in New York at the Art Students League with Dmitri Romanovsky and in Rockport/Gloucester studying landscape painting with Emile Albert Gruppé. She also attended the Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida in its earliest years. After the death of her husband, she moved to Nantucket, turning to a second career in art, painting landscapes in acrylic that spanned two decades, much of that under the tutelage of Philip Burnham Hicken from his studio on Pine Street. She was a member of the Artists Association of Nantucket from 1970 to 1988, including five solo exhibitions at the AAN’s The Little Gallery, the last in 1987.
