Information on the artist: Donald Blagge Barton ( 1903-1990) was a painter of Impressionist marine views and landscapes. He was born in Fitchburg, Massachusetts in 1903 and was especially noted for his scenes of fishing boats in Gloucester and Rockport, Massachusetts. He traveled in 1927 to Europe and North Africa, and in 1928 to New Mexico and Arizona, where he painted Pueblo Indians and the Grand Canyon. Many of his canvases were stored for years in the barn of his home in Fitchburg and were rediscovered in 1987 by a city planner from Boston. They were subsequently exhibited in Boston and New Jersey. Thus, he earned attention for his painting talents just before his death in 1990. Studied: Metropolitan School of Art.
