1843 - 1939
John Hammond (1843-1939), was known for his landscapes, especially his marine scenes depicting the Bay of Fundy. Inspired by the schools of Barbizon in France and La Haye in the Netherlands, his paintings show a deep and poetic rendering which transports us in the spirit of the time.

His numerous travels in Europe, Asia and the Americas enriched his experience and allowed him to achieve artistic maturity. After having met the artist Whistler, we can notice in his works a greater attention to tones and depiction of fog and mist.
He exhibited all around the world and as mentioned by Paul Gladu in the Spring 1998’s edition of Magazin’Art : “Hammond’s landscapes are full of open spaces and constitute beautiful studies of the variations of daylight, always rendered with fineness and attention to detail. Water and marine elements are always depicted with exquisite shading and almost evanescent hues.”
This love of nature left behind the legacy of a rich production which gives delight to art collectors around the world.
