Biography  
Margaret Huntington


Biography from the Archives of askART

Margaret W. Huntington, born in 1867, was a painter of landscapes and still-lifes who lived in New York City, exhibiting in galleries including Passedoit and Midtown.  She was a member of the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors in New York City, and won prizes in their exhibitions in 1927, 1931 and 1937.

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.
