Lester G. Hornby
1882 - 1956


Thistle Fine Art is pleased to present a small collection of watercolors and prints from the estate of Lester G. Hornby. One of the founders of the Rockport Art Colony, Hornby is one of the least well known - despite critical success during his lifetime. His etchings were especially well received, but less well known are his watercolors. They are evocative of the subjects he painted without pandering to the prevailing styles of the day - relying instead on strength of line and subtle color. The small collection that we present is indicative of his genius. It provides a great starting point for buyers wishing to build a collection around the works of an important, but undervalued artist. One should always seek quality, but with the work of Lester G. Hornby one is also making a sound investment.
