Description: Harold Weston (American 1894 - 1972) "Sketch of the Andirondacks". With Montross Gallery (NY), The Atelier (San Francisco) labels verso. Oil on board. Sight Size: 5 x 7.5 inches. Harold Weston briefly attended the Art Students League in New York before choosing to live a solitary life in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. In 1936 Weston earned a Treasury Art Project commission to paint murals of national recovery efforts for the General Services Administration. During War World II Harold Weston went to Washington, D.C. where he founded a citizens' organization "Food for People." First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt credits Weston's efforts to the creation of the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration. In the 1950s and 1960s Weston lobbied for public support of the arts, which led to much arts legislation and eventually the establishment of the National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities in 1965.
