I have a signed seascape painting by s seymore thomas dated 1937 painted for my mother who lived in pasadena ca in 37. I think it was a wedding gift to her.

I purchased a watercolor of what I believe is Monterey Harbor last week for two dollars and was surprised to learn more about it. Signed Seymour Thomas- 1941. Where can I get more info?

Hawaii information
Dan Rohlfing (07/19/2006)
I found out from a Hawaii fine art expert that Stephen Seymour Thomas did indeed spend 1938-1939 in Hawaii, and was known to have painted portraits of notable Hawaiians. This information is not in the book. I have also learned that he was friends with a much younger painter, Josh Meador, and his family, and had referred clients to Josh.

Many of Stephen Seymour Thomas's paintings are signed: S. Seymour Thomas. I did see one signed Seymour Thomas. The book, S. Seymour Thomas 1865-1956 A Texas Genius Rediscovered, by Cecilia Steinfeldt might be of help to you.

Original Seymour Thomas
Marilyn Irvin (03/19/2006)
My original art is signed Seymour Thomas. It was framed in the last city that he lived, La Crescenta, CA. Does anyone know if he could have possibly just signed his name Seymour Thomas and not Stephen Seymour Thomas????

Is there any record of Stephen Seymour Thomas' painting in Hawaii, and if so, during what years?

Seymour Thomas and his wife were long time residents of La Crescenta, Ca. The La Crescenta Woman's Club has collected a lot of information on the Thomases while members of the community. She was in fact their first president I believe. They have a beautiful restored portrait of Mrs. Thomas. They can be contacted at P.O. Box 8494, La Crescenta, CA. 91214.

Actually, a "Texas" artist!
Dr. Jeffrey Owens (05/19/2001)

He studied at the Art Students' League of New York, 1886-88, the Julien Academy and Ecole des Beaux Arts, Paris. On Oct 11, 1892, he married Helen Montmorency Haskell of San Francisco. An expatriate, primarily known as a portraitist prior to 1910, he resided in Paris in 1910 at 19 Boul, Pasteur, Paris. His studios were at 11 Impasse Rousin, Paris, and 80 W. 40th St., New York. Thomas belonged to the Paris Society of American Painters and won awards at numerous European exhibitions in the early 1900s.
