Margery Stocking Hart (1888-1993)

Born New Jersey. Died Bridgeport, Connecticut.
Parents: Alpheus Charles and Any (Charlotte) Stocking.

New Maxwell Art School
This new consciousness of art and artists in San Francisco has moved Fred Maxwell to sponsor a school of art, opening in the Fairmont Hotel building May 15th. Reputable artists have joined Maxwell in his contention that such enthusiasm must not be left to flicker itself out. Margery Stocking Hart has undertaken to teach life drawing and still life…

Margery Stocking Hart., of Greenwich, a renowned painter, is showing a varied selection of collector's and investment pictures. Born of American forbears, her career as an Artist bloomed; first, as a young girl she became a successful illustrator. Later, she financed her studies at the Art Students League with the earnings from her professional work. During her student days she competed with the nations top male artists, and managed to hold her own, winning many awards in various media. The first woman to received the Beaux Arts medal- her mural design won over thirty competitors from the Yale school of Architecture. In later years, Mrs. Hart went to California, and was thrilled by the gorgeous flora and fauna of the region, soon winning quite a reputation as a flower and still -life painter. These pictures were widely acclaimed at a first showing in San Francisco's Gump Gallery, and other one-man shows. The Bruce Museum takes great pride and pleasure in being able to present an exhibition by such a distinguished American, and Artist.

Bruce exhibits Paintings of Margery S. Hart
Greenwich- The Bruce Museum is exhibiting the paintings of Mrs. Margery Stocking Hart of Greenwich through Oct. 8, 1967
It is a compliment to her popularity and ability as an artist that the museum has asked Mrs. Hart to show her work for the second time in three years. Her many medals and honors attest to her popularity with the various juries which have judged her shows through the years.
A pure relist, Mrs. Hart has the ability to paint her subject, be it portraits or still-life, in a charming and poetic manner. She is particularly interested in painting Oriental still-life. Her ability to depict the soft glowing and iridescent colors of Chinese porcelains marks her as a fine, sensitive colorist.
This probably will be the last time the public will have the opportunity to see or purchase any of Mrs. Hart’s work in Greenwich as she and her husband intend to settle in Canada.
Mrs. Hart is a member of the Society of Western Artists, the American Artists Professional League, National League of American Pen Women, National Arts Club, Hudson Valley Art Association, and the American Art Students League, where she was a student.
The Bridgeport Post (newspaper) (Bridgeport, Connecticut) 24 September, 1967.

Painting is an oil on canvas; size is 8" x 10," plus frame. Signed and dated 1910. Conserved. Reproduction frame. Interesting work by this now-unknown Connecticut female artist and illustrator.
