Rare Old Lyme Connecticut Impressionist Landscape Painting By Nell Choate Jones
For sale is a spectacular and quite rare impressionist landscape painting by the New York artist Nell Hinton Choate Jones (1879 - 1981). Although born in Georgia Nell Choate Jones spent the majority of her artistic career in Brooklyn New York. Probably more famous for her paintings of southern African Americans in rural Georgia, she quite frequently visited the Old Lyme artist colony in Connecticut and painted wonderful connecticut Impressionist landscapes in the Old Lyme Impressionist style. We believe this painting to be in that style and from the Old Lyme Connecticut area. She also painted gorgeous New York landscapes up near the Catskills in the Hudson Valley in Woodstock New York.

There she painted with John F Carlson and you can definitely see Carlson's influence in the colors and brushstrokes in this painting. This landscape painting appears to depict a late Autumn Connecticut landscape. You can see most of the tree leaves have fallen to the ground below forming a lovely color variety to the landscape.

The artist has captured this in beautiful impressionist brushstrokes of thick vibrant impasto oil paint. The atmosphere of the morning sky is very moody and gives off a lovely luminescent quality of light.

The frame is a contemporary plein air gold gilt impressionist style picture frame. The artist has signed this painting in the lower right corner. It is undated but it appears to be done in the late 1930s or 1940s in age. This painting is ready to hang in any collection of American impressionist work.

Please ask any additional questions should you have them regarding this painting. Frame - 15 1/2 x 19 1/2. Canvas - 12" x 16". Nell Hinton Choate Jones (1879 - 1981). Nell Choate Jones painted in a style that, while not abstract, eschews detail for form while it emphasizes mass, movement and contour.

In picture after picture it is the sway of a back, the bend in an elbow, or the carriage of a head held high that gives her figures character and charges them with life. Jones was born in Hawkinsville, Georgia, in 1879, the daughter of James Choate, a Captain in the Confederate army, and Cornelia Roquemore. Her grandfather Choate was an architect who built lovely things in Milledgeville. Beautiful gateways and other artistic designs, according to an undated newspaper clipping. When her father died in 1884, the family moved to New York, where Nell lived to be 101 years old. She attended Adelphi Academy in the fashionable Fort Greene section of Brooklyn. For many years she taught kindergarten and elementary school. It was only in the 1920s that, encouraged by her husband, Eugene A. Jones, a painter and etcher, she took up painting.

She studied with Fred J. Carlson and with Auguste Garguet at the Fontainebleau School of Fine Arts in France. In a joint show with Eugene in 1927 at the Holt Gallery on Lexington Avenue, she showed the fruits of her year at Fontainebleau as well as scenes of Woodstock and Old Lyme, artists colonies which she and her husband frequented. On a visit to Georgia in 1936 to attend her sister's funeral, Nell Jones was impressed by the red Georgia clay, the lush green foliage, and the colorful and seemingly simpler life of the state's rural Afro-Americans as subjects for her canvases.

She began with this trip to visit the South regularly. The work which resulted was often exhibited with the Southern States Art League and found its way into important southern museum collections such as Atlanta's High Museum of Art and the Fort Worth Art Museum. Highly respected in her profession, Nell was elected President of the Brooklyn Society of Artists in 1949, becoming the first woman to head that organization in its thirty-four year history. While still in that office she was asked to head the National Association of Women Artists. The NAWA, founded in a studio on Washington Square in 1889 with only five members, numbered eight hundred when Nell was elected President in 1951. As a participant in this group she was invited to display her work nationally and internationally, including at the New York World's Fair of 1940 and in the American Gallery of Athens, Greece in 1 957. At the age of ninety-six Nell was chosen as the NAWA's Woman of the Year. Nell Jones was an active woman into her final years.

The Director of the Marbella Gallery in New York, the last gallery to give her a show, which was mounted in 1979, recalled her bravely ascending a flight of stairs to see the installation. She was chatty that day in her one-hundredth year, full of questions and information about the many artists she had known over her long, distinguished career. Nell Jones died in Brooklyn just two years later. The item "Rare Old Lyme Connecticut Impressionist Landscape Painting By Nell Choate Jones" is in sale since Thursday, May 25, 2017.
