A superb oil on canvas titled "For a Night at the Dock" by Connecticut native and listed artist Anne Rogers Minor. Anne B. Rogers Minor (1864-1947) was born in East Lyme, Connecticut on April 7, 1864. She was exhibiting regularly by 1917. She exhibited at the New Haven Paint and Clay Club in 1920 and at the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts in 1917 and 1944. She had her first one woman show at the Norfolk Museum of Arts in the Arts Corner in 1942. Forty-six of her paintings were exhibited there. Her painting Venetian Church is part of the collection of the Lyman Allyn Museum. Anne B. Rogers Minor was a member of the New Haven Paint and Clay Club, the Conecticut Academy of Fine Arts, the American Artists Professional League, the Gloucester Society of Artists, and the North Shore Arts Association of Gloucester. This painting measures almost 8"x 10" and with the frame (under glass) it measures 12 1/4"x 14 1/4". Fantastic brush strokes throughout and calming color scheme. The frame has paint loss but the painting is in excellent condition. The back has some provenance- artist name, title, original price ($25) and the frame store. An important piece for Connecticut and its residence, but also a wonderful piece of art.
