Stacy Tolman

Stacy Tolman (1860-1935) was a friend of Duphiney and a fellow RI artist.

A bio contributed by Jim Martin in says this of Tolman:

"Born in Concord, Massachusetts, Stacy Tolman became a noted painter in Rhode Island, where he taught at the Rhode Island School of Design. He studied with Otto Grundman in Boston and at the Academie Julian in Paris.

He settled in Pawtucket, Rhode Island and painted in both oils and watercolors, and is best known for his work in portraits, landscapes, villages and interior genre.

He was an early member of the Providence Art Club, and Providence Watercolor Club. His studio, previously used by Charles Walter Stetson, was in the Fleur de Lis Building, in Providence with Sidney Burleigh, George Whitaker, Chester Dodge, Frank Mathewson, and Gertrude Parmelee (Cady).

Tolman traveled to Europe and the Middle East to paint, and exhibited at the National Academy of Design, and Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts."

How lucky you are to have such a wonderful collection of your grandfather's work. Stacy Tolman was my great great uncle. He and his wife Helen had no children so my grandmother spent a lot of time with her aunt and uncle. Your grandfather's work reminds me quite a bit of Unle Stacys. Thanks for sharing, Jan Fisher
