1888 - 1954, American
A very fine Rockport scene by Anthony Thieme, this oil on canvas measures 8 x 10 inches, c. 1935, signed "A Thieme" in the lower right corner, framed. One of the most popular artists associated with the Rockport School, Anthony Thieme was born in Rotterdam, Holland. His early training in fine art was with George Hackler at the Royal Academie of Fine Arts in the Hague; he later studied at the German Academy and with Italian masters Garlobini and Mancini. In the 1920s Thieme emigrated to America and after spending some time in NYC, fell in love with the area around Cape Ann, Massachusetts.
