Lucy H. Doane

Lucy H. Doane, an American artist and teacher, was born in Nahant, Mass. in 1908. She lived and worked in New England, creating expressive paintings influenced by the Cubism movement.

Early in her career, Doane was known as an illustrator of children's books, but her interest later shifted to painting Vermont landscapes and Massachusetts seascapes. Her paintings were exhibited widely in New England and New York. Her works are now part of many private and public collections, including the National Gallery in Washington, D.C. She was named a Fellow of the Vermont Academy of Arts in Sciences in 1991, in recognition of her "outstanding contribution to the cultural resources of the state." Doane lived to be 101 years old and exhibited well into her eighth decade.
