Gamaliel Waldo Beaman
Gamaliel Waldo Beaman was a distinguished painter of rustic New England landscapes, best known for his views of New Hampshire’s White Mountains. Born in Westminster, Massachusetts, Beaman studied art at the Lowell Institute and received further training in Paris. He spent most of his life in rural Massachusetts, painting its rocky mountains, rugged pastures, and wooded coves. He was a frequent exhibitor at the Boston Art Club and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and his work is now collected by such prominent institutions as the Smithsonian American Art Museum. His paintings are also featured in public libraries throughout Massachusetts, including the Westminster Historical Society Museum and the Forbush Library in Westminster, MA and the Princeton Public Library in Princeton, MA.
