The Gaze of the Artist: Willbur Aaron Reaser
2017 – 2019
Willbur Aaron Reaser (1860-1942), an American artist from Ohio who studied in San Fransisco and Paris. His paintings were widely exhibited in both France and the United States and he was well known for his speciality in portrait painting. Reaser was a close friend of the Colby family; he would often come to Stanstead and visit the Colbys for a few weeks during the summer. This exhibition explores Reaser’s intimate gaze into the life and world of the Colby family in the beautiful region of Stanstead County and also in the family home of Carrollcroft.
