Recent auctions of American art at Grogan and Company in Boston verify the continued interest in cityscapes of bygone eras. Arthur Clifton Goodwin (1864 – 1929) painting of the Boston common fetched a healthy $6,000 concluding bid.
The Providence School artist, Stacy Tolman (1860 – 1935), a close friendship or Arts and Crafts extraordinaire S.R. Burleigh, painted this Providence scene “View from the First Baptist Church”. Tolman was very much in tune with the preferences of the local art collector and Goodwin, a fellow Boston art colleague.
Tolman is the MET collection.
