Measures: 9" H x 11.25" W x 1.5" D. 6" x 8" rabbet. Additional information from the enclosed document:"Robert Hogg Nisbet was born in Providence, Rhode Island on August 25, 1879. His parents were Williams Dougla Nisbet and Isabella Hogg. He entered the Rhode Island School of Design when he was eight. He later studied in New York and abroad. He taught at Brown University and was president of the Art Students League of New York, where he served as president from 1909-1910.He was elected an Associate Member of the National Academy of Design in 1920 and a National Academic (N.A.) in 1928. He was an Artist Life member of the National Arts Club. One of the incorporators of the Society of American Etchers, he was also a member of Philadelphia Society of Etchers. During the early 1900s, Nisbet summered in Old Lyme, Connecticut, and eventually settled in Kent, Connecticut where he founded the Kent Art Association whose members included Willard Metcalf.His work won him three National Academy awards, several etching awards, and the National Arts Club (Panting) prize. His etchings and paintings were exhibited in Paris, France, Yale University, Metropolitan Museum of Ar, New York Library, National Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, and Library of Congress in Washington D. C. The Smithsonian Institution has a database with references to fourteen of his works. Paintings and etchings by Robert H. Nisbet sell for from hundreds of dollars to more than $10,000.He took up rifle shooting as a boy, and during World War II was a commissioned rifle instructor. He won a number of shooting competitions. He was also interested in archery, and he owned collections of minerals and sea shells.In 1951 he lived in South Kent, Connecticus in a house in the country with his wife, Mrs. Nisbet. They had a large house and studio, and he was considered quite wealthy. He had a collection four thousand books. He was a member of the Masons, and was Deputy Grand Master of the Masons of Connecticut.His final life was a tragedy as his wife became a complete invalid following a stroke about 1953 and required 24 hour-a-day nursing care which just about bankrupted him. On Robert's death, April 20, 1961, she was put in a Masonic home where she died in less that a week." ***IN-HOUSE SHIPPING & DELIVERY QUICK QUOTES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST*** ***DELIVERY NOTICE - Due to COVID-19 we are employing NO-CONTACT PRACTICES in the transfer of purchased items.
