Artist of the moment……Vivian Akers

 

Vivian in this case is a man’s name, and Vivian Akers was born in Norway, Maine in the year 1886. Akers spent time as a portrait artist, painting some Supreme Court Justices, but it is for his landscapes he is best known for. Akers was a painter and carver.

Some favorite subjects painted by the artist include trees, mountains, and flowers.

For his artistic education Vivian Akers studied at a local art academy and took classes with various regional artists that lived in an artist’s colony also in Maine.

Price range information: Works range from $3,000 to $25,000.

Vivian Akers passed away in 1966.

I enjoy the colors the artist used in his shadows. Akers was also great at painting snow many wonderful shades of light grey.
