George Gardner Symons
Frost Bound Stream
25 x 30 inches

Frost Bound Stream is one of the finest examples of George Gardner Symons well-known snow scenes.    The art critics praised Symons for his lively paintings of ice covered streams reflecting the multitude of colors.   Symons was honored to sell a large snow scene to the Metropolitan of Art in New York in 1910 establishing his success as one of the most revered artists of the time.  Symons wisely used to the proceeds from the sale to further his career. George Gardner Symons was elected an associate member of the National Academy of Design the same year in 1910.  He was given full membership in 1911.

Rarely is an artist equally revered on both coasts of the United States; however, Symons is indeed both a prominent figure in Eastern art circles as well as in the California school.  Symons began his art training at the Art Institute of Chicago.  It was there that he met his life-long friend and painting companion, William Wendt (1865-1946).  Symons continued his studies in Munich, Paris and London and eventually settled in Brooklyn.  He made his first trip to California in 1884 and in 1896 accompanied by Wendt, returned and built a studio in what is now south Laguna Beach.

Works held: Metropolitan Museum, New York; Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences; Art Institute of Chicago; Cincinnati Museum; Corcoran Museum; Laguna Art Museum; The Irvine Museum; Fleischer Collection, Arizona; Butler Institute, Ohio; Los Angeles County Museum;  Toledo Museum; Union League Club, Chicago; Fort Worth Museum; Minneapolis Institute of Art.
