Biography from Pierce Galleries, Inc.:
Conger Metcalf (American, 1914-1998):

Conger Metcalf studied at Stone City Art Colony with Grant Wood, at Coe College with Marvin Cone and the Museum School (Boston) with Alexandre Iacovleff and Karl Zerbe. He received an Honorary Doctorate from Coe College in 1964.

He was the recipient of the Tiffany Foundation Prize and was a Museum of Fine Arts Paige Traveling Scholar. During his late 20s, he went to Italy and Paris and studied the Old Masters and come back to Boston an artist totally influenced by the Renaissance masters.

Metcalf developed a unique style from which he painted thin translucent washes of soft toned colors of oil pigment onto canvas, masonite and waxed papers and he specialized in painting young children (especially boys) sketching, reading, playing together or contemplating. Many of his moody subjects depict forlorn, destitute-looking, pensive street urchins, although his clown subjects and those of artist’s muses and girls often are more cheerful.

The artist is represented at the Boston Atheneum; the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln, MA; Cedar Rapids Art Center (MI) and Coe College, Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
