Wetherbee, George (1851-1920) by Scholes, Robert
George Faulkner Wetherbee (1851 – 1920) From Wikipedia Born in Cincinnati, his early talent was evident and he was sent to Europe to study in art schools at Antwerp, then London. He then lived in various countries on the continent of Europe, and frequently visited the West Indies to paint there. He achieved success in his 40s, with recognition by the distinguished London art societies, and his mastery of colour and light were highly acclaimed. He worked in both oils and watercolor, mostly showing idyllic landscapes with small figures of young people. He also made several commercial rural scenes in the 1890s, immediately after his success.
