Description: In 1991 Robert Mallory Klein, a world-traveled, retired diplomat living in Elmore with his wife, decided to paint the villages and hamlets of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom – over 100 in all. He spent many consecutive summers painting several views of each; broad strokes of bold color, afforded by summer light, are reminiscent of Hopper, portraying routine places that one might otherwise take for granted. He painted the ordinary scenes before him – the farmhouse, the store, the patched roofs and leaning porches – and captured, in doing so, the lives of the people who lived there – however modest and humble. What remains are the enduring images of the towns and villages he loved. In a sense he documented a history of the Northeast Kingdom; many of the places have changed with the times; many remain the same. Open Wednesday through Sunday.
