I happened to come across these two paintings listed in a Skinner's auction catalog. The paintings, while pleasant and competent, might not seem that striking. The name of the artist, Edward Darley Boit, may not immediately ring a bell with most people.
|Lot 1016: Edward Darley Boit (American, 1842-1916) Hillside Landscape|
|Lot 1362: Edward Darley Boit (American, 1840-1915) Villa, San Remo|
What makes them of interest is the connection the artist has to a very well known painting, possibly the most famous painting in Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Yes, those are his daughters in the famous Sargent painting.
