Picknell captures a woman in a burgundy skirt sitting in the sun beneath a tree on a verdant green lawn. She looks down, immersed in the sewing project in her lap. -- George W. Picknell was born in North Springfield, Vermont on June 26, 1864. A landscape specialist and brother of noted painter William Lamb Picknell, George Picknell became widely know for his renderings of Connecticut and rural France. Picknell lived in Boston, MA, for much of his boyhood and worked as an apprentice to a Boston engraver before he left for Paris in 1887 where he studied at the Julian Academy (Academie Julian) under Jules Lefebvre and Benjamin Constant from 1887 until 1890. On his return to the U.S., Picknell worked for some years as an illustrator in Boston and New York. Then he returned to Paris for about 15 years where he regularly exhibited his works of the French countryside at the Paris Salon and at important exhibitions in Nice and Toulouse. He was a founding member of the American Artists Association in Paris. He appears to have returned to the American in 1910 or 1911 and held a solo exhibition of his work at the John Herron Institute in Indianapolis (Now the Indianapolis Museum of Art in 1911. He was active in Freehold, NJ, before settling in Silvermine, CT, in 1912. He was a member of the Knockers Club (precursor to the Guild) and founding member of the Silvermine Guild of Artists and exhibited as well at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, The Society of Independent Artists and the Chicago Art Institute. He was also a member of the Salmagundi Club and the American Federation of Arts. During World War I, Picknell and his wife, SGA artist Florence Picknell, operated the Fine Arts Theater in Westport, CT. In 1945, two years after his death, his work was exhibited at the Silvermine Guild's 50th Anniversary Exhibition. A writer for the Norwalk Hour thought the Picknell works on view showed the "majesty of nature."
