Aldro T. Hibbard is considered on of the most notable of the ‘Cape AnnSchool’ impressionists. After studying at The Mass. College of Art and The Boston Museum School he was awarded a grant to travel abroad where he among others met and was impressed by Joaquin Sorolla. Settling down in Rockport in 1920 he became a leading figure and a founding member of The Rockport Art Association. Throughout his life Hibbard created a vast body of work with an emphasis on Vermont winter landscapes as well as powerful depictions of his maritime environment of which this particular work is a prime example. Works by Aldro Hibbard hang in major public and private collections and are currently much sought after by collectors of American Impressionism.
