Aldro Hibbard N.A. (1886-1972)

South Londonderry, Vermont

Oil on canvas, 17 x 21, Framed 23 x 27


Born in Falmouth, MA in 1886, Aldro Thompson Hibbard received his early art training at the Boston Museum School where he studied with Edmund Tarbell, Frank W. Benson and Joseph DeCamp. Due to his exceptional talents, Hibbard received a Paige Traveling Scholarship (1913-15) to study abroad. Hibbard later founded the Rockport Art Association Summer School of Drawing and Painting (1921-28), also known as the Hibbard School of Painting. The Rockport Art Association recently held a special retrospective exhibition for him. Beginning in the 1920s, Hibbard resided in the Cape Ann, Massachusetts area and spent his winters in Vermont and Jamaica. Vermont was the locale of many impressionistic winter landscapes for which Hibbard is best known. In fact, he was so adept at painting snow scenes, a review in the Boston Globe for the 1918 Guild of Boston Artists exhibition noted: “Hibbard is a realist; you feel the reality of everything he paints, but the sentiment, the poetry is there also.” (1) Source: (1) Cooley, John L.
