George Picknell (American, 1864-1943) was born in North Springfield, Vermont on June 26, 1864.  He worked as an apprentice to a Boston engraver before he left for Paris in 1887 to study at the Julian Academy. After his return from Paris, Picknell briefly worked as an illustrator in Boston and New York. He returned to Paris for about fifteen years, painting throughout the country and exhibiting regularly at the Paris Salon.  In 1910, he returned to the United States and was active in Freehold, NJ before settling in Silvermine, CT in 1912.  He is best known for his landscapes of Connecticut and rural France.  Picknell died in 1943.
