Sam Newton / Oil on Masonite
24 X 29 (with frame)
Sam (1948 - Present) was one of three Newton brothers – including Harold and Lemuel – who are included in the group of painters now known as the Highwaymen. While Harold stands as the most notable artist of the three, Sam has had a long and accomplished career as a painter of Florida’s landscapes in his own right. Sam rejected the “fast painting” style of some Highwaymen and instead took his time on his richly detailed depictions of Florida’s natural beauty. The three Newton brothers are considered some of the most talented and skilled of the group.
