About the Artist

Alexander Brook
Born in Brooklyn, New York, Alexander Brook began his studies at the Art Students League in 1914. Along with his first wife, Peggy Bacon, Brook was a member of the Woodstock artists’ colony from 1920-1940. He spent much of the following decade traveling between New York and Savannah, Georgia. His paintings are rendered with soft brushwork and muted, somber colors. In 1940, Life magazine hailed the American scene realist as “one of America’s best painters.” In 1945, Brook married Gina Knee and settled in Sag Harbor, New York.
