Norman R. O'Brien (1920 - 1982), was active/lived in Massachusetts, he was known for architecture & building paintings.
To quote an interview he did back in 1980, he said: "My work carries no heavy message - I leave that to the writers. My only message is the hope that my viewers enjoy it. My main objective is to paint the personality and character of these structures aged by the elements and time. I strive to keep my work simple in these complicated times. I leave room for you to step in and roam freely without stumbling, and to feel the warmth and the love that I have for these buildings. These old places are slowly disappearing and I hope that in my work I have preserved a part of the land."
