Art from Aunt (Doris) Jean’s House

My cousin Gina brought along some photos of H. Lewis’s art to our cousin get-together. These come from her mother, Jeanie’s, home.

As the youngest daughter of the youngest daughter (Hazel) of Hubert Lewis’s, Doris Jean Boynton is one of the few surviving grandchildren. Born Doris Jean Rogers, my aunt prefers to be called Aunt Jeanie.

Hubert Lewis painted several family members, and his youngest daughter, Hazel, was the subject in two pieces that I know of. One of her as a young woman, which appears in this post and another as a young married woman with her husband AP Rogers (my sister Teri owns that piece). The blue spot on the photo is from printer ink, not on the art itself.

Posted below are the other works that are in Aunt Jeanies’s house. The photos have been retouched to restore color due to printing and scanning.

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.
