Carl Schaad (1946-2011), who died of neuroendocrine cancer, captured landscapes and still life scenes on canvas in a subtle color palette. His lyrical craftsmanship creates a meditative mood of ordinary scenes. He was moved by impressionists Berthe Morisot and Mary Cassatt. He favored realism and a classical approach leaning toward American Impressionism. Most weekends Carl could be found painting “en plein air” in rural and coastal settings. Carl trained at The Museum School of Boston, The Art Guild of Boston, and the Ingbretson Atelier. He studied with Robert Cormier, William Bartlett, William Ternes, Joseph McGurl, and Mary Minifie. More than thirty oil paintings and giclee limited edition prints spanning three decades will be on display and for sale at Heritage through November 30, 2019. A portion of the proceeds benefits NETRF.
