During the month of August the library’s gallery will display a collection of works by Dr. Allen, an active landscape painter in Maine. He studied with Charles Woodbury in Ogunquit and settled in Cape Elizabeth.
This is a private collection and a unique opportunity that will include photographers showing how the landscape of Portland has changed.
Born in Brownfield, Maine, John H. Allen (1866-1953) graduated from Portland High School and the University of Pennsylvania, then studied medicine in Berlin, Germany. He was a nose and throat surgeon at Maine General Hospital for over three decades. Dr. Allen was also an accomplished oil painter, a member of the Portland Society of Art, the Ogunquit Art Association, and the Haylofters of Portland. He was honored with a one-man show at the Portland Society of Art in 1943.
