The atmosphere of Americana with its spirit of freedom and historic landmarks is part of the flair of Boston that comes to life in works by Arthur Clifton Goodwin (1864-1929). Iconic subjects abound such as the famed Faneuil Hall of patriot days and the old Park Street Church (oft-painted by Goodwin), where the anthem “My Country, ’Tis of Thee” (also “America”) was first sung in public. Those buffs of all things Boston may find his colorful, appealing style as delectable and satisfying as a serving of savory Boston baked beans.
