Oil on Board by Hilton Hassell (1910-1980).
Titled on back “Madawaska Spring”
with Frame measures:
During Hassell’s early years, a Canadian art movement, formed by a loose fraternity of artists known as The Group of Seven, was beginning to emerge. Concentrating mainly on the Canadian landscape, they were dedicated to the belief that Canadian art must be truly inspired by Canadian nature itself. In 1929, Hassell studied under two of the original members of the group, JEH MacDonald and FH Johnson; as well as JW Beattie at the Ontario College of Art. They encouraged Hassell and, inspired by their work, Hassell went on to explore different styles, eventually blending the flow of forms which he ‘saw’ in nature. Later, AY Jackson and Hassell painted together on Georgian Bay. He became friends with another member of the group, AJ Casson.

Born in Norwich in Norfolk, England, the son of farmer William Boughton. The family emigrated to the United States in 1835, and he grew up in Albany, New York where he started his career as a self-taught artist. At this early stage he was influenced by the artists of the Hudson River School. By the age of 19 he was recognised as a landscape painter and opened his first studio in 1852. In 1853, the American Art Union purchased one of his early pictures which financed six months of studying art in England. He concluded this period of his training with a sketching tour of the Lake District, Scotland and Ireland.
Boughton exhibited extensively in both Britain and USA, and was elected a member of the National Academy of Design in New York in 1871. He was elected a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours, an Associate of the Royal Academy (ARA) in 1879, and a Royal Academician (RA) in 1896.
His paintings are now represented in many museums in the United States and Europe

It depicts a country scene of a stone bridge with wooden rails, in winter, near sunset. A man stands beside the walled embankment along the river, watching the flowing water, as ice forms on its surface. Two country cottages, a field, and a forest beyond form the mid-field and background.

This rare map is framed under glass in a simple, thin black frame accented with two different bands painted gold.

This is a finely rendered oil painting by an unknown artist depicting a woman and her two small children fleeing some unknown terror. Her daughter buries her face in her skirts and covers her eyes and the babe in arms looks over his mother’s shoulder, as the woman bends on one knee in supplication, poised to knock on a heavy wooden door. In the background, a cross stands on the edge of a wooded path, leading through the mountains. The sky above is dark and stormy. The little girl’s scarf appears to be blown by the wind.
