Biography George Shanton
George Shanton's career spanned several decades with most of his talents being used to design theatre sets around the country. He studied at the Yale Drama School and theatre-scene painting with Woodman Thompson. From the early 1940's to the early 1980's he painted stage sets for theatre and ballet productions throughout the United States.
He was involved as a set dresser on the films On Golden Pond and Ghost Story. His easel paintings often feature trains passing through rocky terrain. Very few of his oils were ever offered for sale until his one man show at Gold Street Gallery, Lakeport, New Hampshire in 1997.
