    Helen Galloway McNicoll (1879-1915) was a Canadian impressionist painter.

    Born in Toronto, she became deaf in childhood as the result of scarlet fever. She attended the Art Association of Montreal, studying under William Brymner from 1899. In 1902 she moved to England to study in London at the Slade School and later in St Ives, Cornwall with Algernon Talmadge.

    A member of the Royal Society of British Artists and an associate of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts, she died in Swanage, Dorset, where she had made her home, aged only thirty six. An obituary described her as "one of the most profoundly original and technically accomplished of Canadian artists".

    One of the foremost Canadian female practitioners of Impressionism in her time, Helen Galloway McNicoll is known for her sunlight-infused genre paintings of women and children in rural environments.

    Born in Toronto in 1879, her family later moved to Montreal where she studied painting under William Brymner at the Art Association of Montreal.

    McNicoll was unique in relation to other female artists at the time, as being the daughter of the vice president of the Canadian Pacific Railway she was subsequently able to further her art education by traveling to England to study at both the Slade School of Art in London and St. Ives in Cornwall, and to divide the duration of her lifetime between Montreal and England. It was in England that McNicoll met British Impressionist Dorothea Sharp, with whom she was to develop a close and long-lasting friendship.

    One of the few artists during an age of artistic experimentation to paint using the fresh, clear chromatics and anecdotal themes associated with pure Impressionism, McNicoll exhibited with the Royal Society of British Artists beginning in 1913, becoming a full member of the society in the same year. In Canada, McNicoll was elected a member of the RCA in 1914, after having shown her work with the academy since 1906.

    Particularly adept at capturing tranquility, McNicoll’s paintings were renowned for their portrayals of contemporary life imbued with an atmosphere of peace and stillness. It has been speculated that this heightened visual perception may have been a result of her deafness caused by a bout of scarlet fever in childhood.

    Unfortunately in 1915 McNicoll’s career and life was cut short by yet another illness, and she passed away at the young age of 35 from the effects of diabetes.

    The AMICA Library-Watercolours by Boit

    ***

    Like many wealthy Bostonians, Edward Darley Boit traveled frequently to Italy, eventually purchasing a villa in Cernitoio near Florence around 1897. Venice was a favorite destination for Americans in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries; Boit first visited the city in 1867. The bright colors and watery environment were conducive to his fresh, spontaneous style, characterized by broken brushwork, as in this view of a Venetian square.

    Although living the life of an expatriate, Boit frequently exhibited his European watercolors in New York and Boston, occasionally in joint exhibitions with his more famous friend and colleague John Singer Sargent. A review of his 1912 exhibition at New York's Knoedler Gallery noted, "In Italy, which Mr. Boit has made his second country, he delights in representing picturesque aspects of Venice, Bologna, and Florence; with a rare felicity he expresses the gaeity of the buildings, the streets, the canals bathed in sunlight...."




    ***

    Edward Darley Boit (1840-1915) was an fellow expatriate American Painter and his wife Mary Louisa Boit were friends of Sargent. They lived for periods in Boston, in Rome, and in Paris. Most likely they met in Paris although it's not known exactly when. It was in Paris that he painted the picture. Like Sargent, they were prominent members of the American artistic community and therefore shared quite a bit of camaraderie. (read more)

    Daughters of Edward Darley Boit by John Singer Sargent


    ***
    The four Daughters of Edward Darley Boit are, from left to right: Mary Louisa (1874-1945, about 8 years old at the time), Flourennce (1868-1919, about 14 yrs old), Jane (1870-1955, about 12 yrs old), and Julia (1878-1969, about 4 yrs old). None of the girls ever married, and both Flourennce and Jane, the two rear daughters, became to some extent mentally or emotionally disturbed. Mary Louisa and Julia, the front two girls, remained close as they grew older, and Julia, the youngest, became an accomplished painter in water-colors
