A wooden artist’s easel owned and used by American artist William McGregor Paxton (1869-1941). Paxton was one of the most influential of the Boston School painters and his studio was located at the Fenway Studios in Boston. His finely crafted easel was depicted in several of his paintings, (see last photo). Upon his death the easel was given to his student R. H. Ives Gammell, a noted artist and teacher at Fenway Studios, who taught Paxton’s methods. Upon the death of Gammell, his student Robert Cormier inherited it. The easel was purchased from the estate of Robert Cormier and is in excellent condition with a nice patina. Height of the easel is adjustable. Excellent overall condition, with minor imperfections and expected wear from age and use. Dimensions: 98" h x 26" w x 26" d.
