    Union Square, Winter

    At the age of twenty, Guy Carleton Wiggins was the youngest artist to be represented in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Guy Wiggins was born in Brooklyn and continued his father Carleton Wiggins's legacy of landscape painting. Unlike his father, however, Guy Wiggins studied with artists in the Old Lyme Colony who were developing their own style of Impressionism, fusing the French tradition with emerging American techniques. Guy Wiggins continued to paint in the Impressionist style even after the movement was eclipsed by Realism. Union Square, Winter is a choice example of the artist's trademark scenes of New York in near blizzard conditions.

    This lot is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Guy Wiggins, Jr.
