The following is from Peter Kostoulakos, ISA ˜ Fine Art Consultant

Harold C. Dunbar — painter, teacher, writer, and illustrator — was born in Brockton, MA on December 8, 1882. He resided in Chatham, MA and died in 1953. His work includes portraits, landscapes, street scenes, still lifes, harbors and coastal scenes.

Dunbar studied with Ernest Lee Major (1864-1950) and Joseph De Camp (1858-1923) at the Massachusetts School of Art; Edmund C. Tarbell (1862-1938) at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston; and the Academy Colarossi in Paris.

His exhibitions include the American Watercolor Society, 1917; and the Boston Art Club, 1905,1906, and 1907. During the BAC exhibits he was living and working on Yarmouth Street in Boston, MA and The Hayden Studios in Belmont, MA.

Collections of Dunbar's work include Radcliff College; a portrait of Governor Woodbury at the State House in Montpelier, VT; a portrait of Chief Justice Watson at the Supreme Court in Vermont; Whistler House Museum of Fine Art in Lowell, MA; Beuchner Hospital in Youngstown, OH; Empire Theatre in New York City; Museum City New York; Municipal College in McPherson, KS; and Little Theatre in Chatham, MA.
