American Statesmen Series; Clean and tight in original navy blue cloth bindings with gilt lettering at spines and front boards. Former owner's name signed on ffeps - "Russell Cheney." Russell Cheney (October 16, 1881 – July 12, 1945) was an American Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and New England regionalist painter. Cheney graduated from Yale University in 1904, where he was a member of the Skull and Bones secret society, then studied at the Art Students League with Kenyon Cox and George Bridgman until 1907. From there he went to Paris to continue his art education with Jean Paul Laurens at the Académie Julian. In 1908, he returned to America and continued work with Cox and William Merritt Chase at the Art Students League. Cheney spent several summers painting in York and Ogunquit, Maine. In 1912 he studied there with Charles Woodbury. His first American exhibition was at the Fourth Annual Exhibition of the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts in 1914, and his first New York exhibition was in Babcock Galleries during 1922. Cheney was the longtime partner and lover of author F. O. Matthiessen, who was also a Yale graduate (considerably later) and became a member of Skull & Bones in 1923. Between 1914 and his death in 1945, Russell Cheney participated in sixty-nine one-man shows and was included in more than eighty group exhibitions. Research has uncovered documentation for 936 works. Of these, 459 have been located; 382 are oil paintings, 72 are oil studies on panel or canvas. Two are watercolors, and two are pastels, while 102 works are known only from old black and white photographs and the remaining 376 only by exhibition title. N° de ref. de la librería 39957
