Alice Harmon Shaw (Kirkpatrick) Gallery


Raised on a farm in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, Alice Harmon Shaw (1913-1994) put herself through the Portland School of Art (now the Maine College of Art). While there, she came under the influence of its director, Alexander Bower, who urged her in the direction of watercolors, for which she is best known today. A brief biography and evaluation of her work has been provided by David Barry for Portland Antiques & Fine Art. The 29 drawings (and 2 etchings) listed below were obtained from the Shaw estate and represent the artist's early development.
