French lived many years in his Chesterwood estate in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. It's not far from the Norman Rockwell Museum in the same township, and well worth a visit if you are in the area.
Today's post does not deal with French's sculptures. Instead, it features some paintings I spotted while touring Chesterwood. Two are by French himself, who handled paint brushes nearly as well as sculpting tools. The others are by artist friends of his.

Robert Vonnoh (1858-1933). Apologies for the poor resolution, but that was what the Internet had.
