About the Artist
(1907 - 1981)Born in the Boston area, George W.W. Brewster graduated from Harvard’s School of Design. Shortly thereafter, he began a career in architecture, briefly working with others and then heading his own firm, which generated both regional and national acclaim, including a very public commendation by Frank Lloyd Wright. Having intended to study painting in college, he returned to this, closing his architectural firm in the 1960s. He studied under Barbara Swann in Boston and developed a distinctive semi-abstract style, predominantly portraying landscapes which combine elements of land, shore, water and sky. His paintings are in the Farnsworth Museum, Portland Museum, and Harvard University as well as in many private collections in the United States.
