George Loftus Noyes
« on: August 05, 2020, 12:27:13 AM »

George Loftus Noyes, 4th great-grandson of Captain John Locke, was a highly respected painter, primarily of landscapes and still lifes. He studied three years in Paris, then gained fame in the early 1900's as a painter of the American Impressionist school. He created his most famous works at the Fenway Studios in Boston, but also traveled frequently throughout New England in search of landscapes to paint. In later life he moved to New Hampshire where, unfortunately, a barn fire destroyed many of his works and he slid into a depression from which he never recovered.
