A fine circa 1930's watercolor painting of a sunny lane in Bermuda, a tall lone palm dominating the whitewashed walls and distinctive tiered roofs of Bermuda. Carson was a frequent winter visitor to the island after about 1932, and his contribution to Bermuda art history has been recognized in the Masterworks Bermuda collection. From time to time, oils and watercolors come to the market, but they are scarce. The artist was born in Massachusetts and trained in Boston and at the Art Students League in New York, and at the Boothbay art colony in Maine. Also a writer, teacher and critic, he is best remembered today for his colorful, impressionist and post-impressionist art. He is considered a member of the Provincetown school, active on Cape Cod and in the Cape Ann (Gloucester) area. There are auction records over $5,000 for oils. This example, acquired in Salem, Massachusetts, is in excellent, fresh condition, with colors still very bright. The work measures 11 1/2" by 9 1/2" inside the mat, and 23" by 19" framed.
