Pierre Sanford Ross III(1907 - 1954) studied painting with Thomas Hart Benton and George Luks. He studied lithography with Adolphe Dehn. He had a particular vision for someone loosely described as a Regionalist, with a light often satirical touch that endeared him as a reportage artist. He taught soldiers to paint during WW2 and married in 1947, moving from New Jersey to Vermont. His studio home has been preserved and is my personal dream to occupy the place for a month and absorb the Vermont landscape and his many watercolours of the area. Fortunately the property is for Vacational Renting, so this is not as fanciful as you might think. The online Ross Gallery is well worth a visit,where you will find a marvellous depiction dated 1932 of goods handling equipment on the Pennsylvania Railway.
