A wonderful Boston artist I just discovered


We visited the Peabody Essex Museum to see its exhibit on Summer in New England (closing this week). While there, we discovered a Boston artist we had never heard of -- Allen Rohan Crite (around 96 years old and still living in Boston). Only three paintings were shown -- so I looked for more online:
