This landscape pastel, signed H. Lewis, was also purchased through ebay and came from the seller’s grandmother’s home in Westminster, South Carolina.  It is done in a style like that done in the Hudson River School style.

H Lewis painted replicas of famous paintings. He was awarded an Honorable Mention for a Pinkie at a 1905 New York fair. This painting was found at Runkdouglas.com, a website for Antiques and fine art in Southport, CT. Hubert painted more than one of these, and also painted the Blue Boy more than once. A Blue Boy painting hangs in at least one of my cousin’s homes.

Pastel of a camp site

The camp sites appear to be one of Hubert ‘s favorite subjects. This one seems to be at dusk, whereas many are done more brightly. This was purchased from a gentleman who lives in Pittsburgh and said this pastel was in his family for many years.

Originally listed as a Henry Lewis, I informed seller that signature (H. Lewis) was from Hubert Lewis.
Beautiful purples, pinks and yellows, this photograph does not do this floral oil painting justice.

About Kim

A few pieces of my great grandfather's work were always in display at our home growing up. In fact, every relative it seemed had his art hanging. One day I wanted to find out more about him, and it seemed there was no compilation of information in any one place, and there was some confusion about who H Lewis was. So I started digging and it led me to be the one to compile information from several different places, with a lot of the information coming from relatives who had stories handed down to them. I also searched records and collected art. Please fill free to contact me regarding information about Hubert Lewis.

      If you can, please send a photo to ksnazzy@comcast.net. I can look at it and help to determine if it is a print. He did have a few garden scenes that were prints, so it may well be. Sometimes you can see “Keystone Publishing” somewhere, which would definitely indicate a print.

    Thank you. Right now I write when someone contacts me about the art and has something new to share, so not as many new posts lately. Thank you again.

    Dear Gregory,

    Thank you for contacting me through my website http://www.hlewisartist.com. There has been confusion with identifying some of Hubert Lewis’s works. I cannot view the signature on the photo at all experts, but it does look like a Hubert Lewis painting. You wrote me that the signature you have matches the Hubert Lewis signatures I have posted on my website. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I have seen your posting on Allexperts and wondered if it was a Hubert Lewis work. Now we both know. I’d love to have a photo of the work, as well as the signature, and would post it on this website, with your permission.
