Biography from Whistler House Museum of Art:
The following is from Peter Kostoulakos, ISA Fine Art Consultant

Clare Veronica Hope Leighton 1898-1988

Clare Veronica Hope Leighton — engraver and writer — was born in London, England on April 12, 1898 and died in 1988, probably while residing in Woodbury, CT. Leighton immigrated to the United States in 1939 and became a citizen in 1945. Her oeuvre consists of market scenes, genre, docks, woodcuts, and wood engravings. Leighton studied at the Slade School of the University of London, and earned an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts from Colby College in Waterville, Maine.

Leighton was a member of the National Institute of Arts and Letters in New York City; an academician of the National Academy of Design in New York City; a fellow of the Royal Society of Painters, Etchers and Engravers in London; and the Society of American Graphic Artists. She exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts; the Art Institute of Chicago; and the Boston Public Library held a major retrospective in 1977.

Leighton's work is represented in the collections of the Whistler House Museum of Art in Lowell, MA; the Museum of Modern Art in New York City; the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City; the Art Institute of Chicago in IL; the Cleveland Museum of Art in OH; the Mobile Museum of Art in Mobile, AL; the Lowe Art Museum in Coral Gables, FL; the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens in Jacksonville, FL; the Michael C. Carlos Museum in Atlanta, GA; the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA; the Baltimore Museum of Art in MD; the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum in Minneapolis, MN; the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art in Loretto, PA; and the Print Club of Albany in NY.
