Original oil on canvas by Helena Sturtevant signed and dated 1929. Measures approximately 24” x 20”. In period frame. Lovely scene of a fountain with figural horses. People walking in the background. Most likely a European location. Possibly Brussels or France. Born in Middletown, Rhode Island in 1872, painter and etcher Helena Sturtevant studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston under Edward Tarbell and at the Academie Colarossi in Paris under the tutelage of renowned French painters Lucien Simon and Jacques-Emile Blanche. Unlike the Ecole des Beaux Arts, the Academie Colarossi accepted female students. Sturtevant was listed as one of the Academie’s most notable graduates.
Following her schooling, Sturtevant returned to the States and established a studio in Newport, Rhode Island. She was a member of the American Artists Professional League, National Association of Women Artists, Painters and Sculptors, American Federation of Arts, International Society of Arts and Letters, and was an instructor and director of the School at the Art Association of Newport. Sturtevant exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, National Academy of Design, National Association of Women Artists, Painters, Sculptors, Copley Gallery, Montross Gallery, Newport Art Association, American Artists Professional League and in the Paris Salons.
