Her painting, Nantucket Houses,
is in the Campbell Collection of Wesleyan College, Macon, Georgia, and
is an expressionist painting of two houses, a larger white one framed
by two trees, with a smaller red house to the side, seeming to snarl at
its secondary position. The painting is influenced by Vincent Van
Gogh, but has Huntington's individuality, and emotional and symbolic
expressiveness clearly stamped upon it.
Alfred M. Frankfurter, critic for Art News,
reviewed, in that publication, what were considered her humorous
paintings of the sculpture at the 1939 World's Fair in New York City.
Margaret W. Huntington died in 1958.
