01.06.12 - Brookhill paintings

Paintings done at the Brookhill Bed and Breakfast in North Conway, NH holds one of the most romantic views that overlook an expansive turn of the century landscape. the Inn hosted by Susan has a rich background of quality painters that painted in her home.

Albert Gallatin Hoit, the owner’s great great grandfather, painted mid-19th century which he primarily painted portraits; Daniel Webster and President William Henry Harrison being among his well-known subjects. His portrait of Harrison hangs in the National Portrait Gallery in DC. The White Mountain School painters, of the same era as Hoit, also painted this Brookhill B&B view. One of Hoit’s rare landscapes was painted from Brookhill and now hangs there. Susan’s great aunt Dorothy Bumstead Jarvis (Hoit’s grand daughter) was a well-known (in her day) Boston photographer and she built Brookhill as her summer studio. Visit this beautiful Inn and enjoy the famous landscapes as well. http://www.brookhillbb.com/
