Still Life Oil Painting of Toys by Lillian Gertrude Smith, American dated 1932 20" x 16" oil on canvas, signed lower left, Smith was a artist living in Massachusetts. This charming still life of stuffed toys now restored and reframed Lillian Gertrude Smith (Rockwood), known affectionately as “Miss Lillian,” lived in Auld Lang Syne on Broadway in ’Sconset during the summers from 1909 to 1930. Like Jane Brewster Reid, Smith (Rockwood) delighted in painting the houses, lanes, and beaches of ’Sconset, though she did not limit herself exclusively to the picturesque village on the eastern end of the island. Her typical July and August advertisements offer an “Exhibition of Paintings/ by Lillian Gertrude Rockwood/ ‘Auld Lang Syne’ Studio/ Broadway/ ’Sconset.” The artist resided in Franklin, Massachusetts during the remainder of the year. ~ The Nantucket Art Colony 1920-1945, Nantucket Historical Association Digital Exhibition
