Harold Newton Sold at Auction Prices

b. 1932 - d. 1988

Artist Harold Newton was a preeminent American landscape artist, painting the natural riches of coastal Florida in oils, but ascending the medium with lush color tonality and meticulous structure. He was the most prestigious of the Highwaymen painters, so known because as persons of color they were forced to sell their art from their cars, rather than in local galleries.

Artist Harold Newton had an exquisite sense of color, and his artwork is a blended rich, warm, island-inspired palette with a muted, almost gossamer over-composition. Harold Newton's paintings are reminiscent of traditional Impressionism, yet with structural contrast in which features are delineated distinctly.

The value of Harold Newton art for sale has risen as more collectors recognize a talent that represents a unique genre of picturesque, faithful landscape images. Add other memorable landscape paintings for sale online and at auction to your home gallery.
