Aldro Hibbard

Aldro Thompson Hibbard, American, (1886-1972).



Aldro Hibbard was born in Falmouth, MA and died in Rockport, MA. Along with Anthony Thieme,
he was an important founding member of the Rockport Art Association. Hibbard had the
additional distinction of being a gifted baseball player who was asked to join professional
teams. Instead he gave up sports to become a professional artist.

Hibbard studied art in Massachusetts with contemporaries Edmund Tarbell and Frank Benson.
Because he showed great talent, he was given a traveling scholarship from the Boston Museum
School to study abroad. Hibbard became a member of the Guild of Boston Artists, the National
Academy of Design, the Conn. Academy of Fine Arts, the Rockport AA, the Gloucester AA, and
the Salmagundi Club, NY, to name a few.

He paintings were widely exhibited and his works were the recipient of many awards including
gold medals at the Pennsylavania Academy of Fine Arts, the Hallgarten Prize at the National
Academy of Design, and numerous awards at the Rockport Art Association.

Beginning in the 1920s, Hibbard summered in the Cape Ann, Massachusetts area and spent his
winters in Vermont. Vermont was the locale of many impressionistic winter landscapes for which
Hibbard is best known. In fact, he was so adept at painting snow scenes, a review in the Boston
Globe for the 1918 Guild of Boston Artists exhibition noted:                     

     "Hibbard is a realist; you feel the reality of everything he paints,
     but the sentiment, the poetry is there also. Others paint snow
     that looks like white paint streaked with blue and yellow. Hibbard
     paints snow that never looks like anything else but snow...he is...
     more subtle and more penetrating in his observation of delicate
     nuances of gray, the phenomenon of light on snow."
