George H. Wolfe (1882-1965), an artist from the Chatham area began painting around 1929, tramped around the countryside and worked in his studio in Chatham for the rest of his life. His paintings are influenced by his photography and helped shape his compositions whether interior scenes or those lovely landscapes. In the spring, summer, and fall, Wolfe arranged painting excursions on Thursday afternoons. Picture George Wolfe, with fellow artists and friends, packing their paints and sketchpads into a '43 Plymouth. Driven by Floss Wolfe the group traveled out and documented the far corners of the county. In the winter months, the back room of Wolfe's business was used as a studio for their Thursday get-together's. There are many homes in the Chatham area that have George's paintings on their walls. There is a small tear in the upper right of the painting. It is not a big distraction because it looks like another paint stroke, although slightly off-color.
George Wolfe is a listed Canadian artist and his works are at the National Art Gallery of Canada.
