Hiro Fine Art is interested in purchasing artworks by George Loftus Noyes.

George Loftus Noyes was born in Bothwell, Ontario. Noyes parents were American citizens who moved to America in search of oil. When his father died, the family moved to East Cambridge, Massachusetts. George Noyes began painting at age 15 and by 1885 was working for the New England Glass Company in Cambridge. Noyes was painting fruit and flower pictures on glass. To further his artistic career he enrolled in Paris at the ateliers of Gustave Courtois, Joseph-Paul Blanc, and Paul-Louis Delance. In 1891, he began painting “en plein air,” and his paintings of the French countryside earned him an invitation to the French Salons.

In 1892, Noyes returned to America and settled in Boston where he established his studio and exhibited regularly with the Boston Art Club and the Boston Society of Water Color Painters. He traveled throughout New England in search of landscapes to paint and became a traveling partner with Frederic Edwin Church. Noyes married Mabel Winifred Hall and was a teacher for several important artists include NC Wyeth. Noyes lived all around the United States and eventually settled in New Hampshire where a barn fire destroyed alot of his work. His paintings can be found in several important private and public collections throughout the world.
