Therefore, he began depicting the French soldier in a more familiar, vernacular manner rather than in an idealized, Dravidian fashion. Some of his paintings that represent French soldiers in a more direct, less idealizing style, include Dog of the Regiment, Trumpeter's Horse, and Death of PoniatowskiGallery Value $20,000.00 to $40,000.00

Listed  famous artist Guy C. Wiggings-Guy Carleton Wiggins (1883-1962) Lone tree on planes
 Markings: Signed                                      Size:  
 Medium: Oil Paper                                    About The Artist: Guy C. Wiggins was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1883 and then traveled to England with his family as a boy where he received his early education.  He was the son of Carleton Wiggins, an American painter in the Barbizon style who studied with George Inness and admired Anton Mauve and Dwight Tryon. The Wiggins family had been early and regular visitors to the Old Lyme Colony, and by 1915 Carlton Wiggins had settled in Lyme permanently. He became active in the Lyme Art Association and in the social life of Old Lyme. Carleton Wiggins' palette had brightened under the influence of Old Lyme Impressionism, but in general his work remained tonal and his subjects were truly pastoral, his paintings often of sheep in a meadow. Conversely, his son Guy Wiggins studied with artists in the Old Lyme Colony who were developing their own style of Impressionism, combining both French traditions and emerging American techniques.  He became strongly attracted to Impressionism and stayed with it long after it was considered outmoded and in 1920, he and his family also decided to settle in Lyme.  They remained there for the next twenty years when they relocated to Essex.  Earlier, after returning to America in the 1890s, Guy Wiggins first studied architecture at the Polytechnic Institute in Brooklyn, and then later transferred to the National Academy of Design, where he would study painting, first under William Merritt Chase and later under Robert Henri. He developed a life-long relationship with the National Academy.Wiggins became extremely successful early in his career. At the age of twenty, he was the youngest artist to have a work in the permanent collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He was elected to full membership in the National Academy of Design in 1919 and had already begun to receive many awards, such as the prestigious Norman Wait Harris Bronze Medal from the Art Institute of Chicago in 1917. Throughout his life, his list of prizes continued to grow. He died while on vacation in St. Augustine, Florida, in 1962 and is buried in Old Lyme. People who knew him still talk about him as "the ebullient Wiggins." His artistic reputation surpasses both that of his father and of his son.

Condition: Good condition;
About the Artist: Born Jul. 29, 1888 Pasadena Los Angeles California,  Death: Jun., 1970 Mount Vernon Westchester County New York,  
ROMER SHAWHAN.  He was a Lieutenant and fighter pilot in the Air Service in WW 1 (August 4, 1917-February 13, 1918) and a Captain and Assistant Operations Officer on the staff of Gen. William "Billie" Mitchell. He was awarded the Pershing Army Citation, the Croix de Guere, and the Distinguished Service Medal. He also served in served in WW 2, (December 19, 1940-October 27, 1945), as a pilot in the 147th Aero Squadron. He was discharged as a Lt. Col. U.S.A.F. in August 1945 from Wright-Patterson AFB. He was a graduate of Columbia University School of Architecture, and l'Ecole des beaux Arts in Paris. He was a supervising architect and district manager of the PWA Housing Program in New York City. He had numerous exhibits of his "expressionistic paintings" in New York. He married his "childhood sweetheart" Zayda Justine Zabriskie in New York City, in May, 1936  
ROMER SHAWHAN, World War I flyer in America's First Pursuit Group and Assistant Operations Officer on the staff of the late William ("Billy") Mitchell, A.E.F., and a Lt. Colonel in the Army Air Force during World War II, likes to think that the letter "A" symbolizes many facets of his colorful career. His art exhibition sponsored by the Art Department of the Bronxville Women's Club stamps him unmistakably as an artist of great sensitivity and gives still another meaning to the letter "A" in addition to those of architect, aviator, author and advertising executive. Mr. Shawhan's paintings, depicting abstract fantasies in a variety of media, will seem very new in approach against a background of contemporary art expression, but, in effect, they bridge a gap in his life of almost 50 years to a similar period of art activity while studying at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. At that time, Mr. Shawhan developed an impressionistic technique which was, of course, contemporary to his time. Apparently, he has never lost the facility which made those earlier paintings so acceptable. Currently, his work exhibits a delightful and fantastic--almost playful--foray into the world of imagination. His subject matter is almost indefinable, yet with the same magical quality for picture creation which we have all experienced when looking into the dancing flames of a fireplace late in the evening. As abstractions, the paintings, exhibit a fine sense of color and extraordinary design capabilities. They frequently move slightly in the direction of representation but never so strongly that two people looking at the same picture might not enjoy several different concepts of the artist's intention. These are pictures to be enjoyed. They express art with a sense of humor. They seem to say let's have good lime and enjoy ourselves without attempting to solve the problems of the world with various media on paper or canvas. Commenting on the "meaning" behind his paintings, Mr. Shawhan has this to say: ''My paintings are not ‘message’ pictures. There is no effort to disassemble established art forms nor is there any effort to originate a new art form. The personal joy I derive from color and line and form and the proper combination of these into what I like think are delightful compositions, is the whole of my story. These paintings are playful and, I hope, happy. At most, they may express the kind of exhilaration even the most sophisticated of US can derive from the lilting airs of it Strauss waltz."
