“Hallie Prow was from Salem, IN and attended John Herron Art School. She married a Bloomington doctor and largely quit painting until his passing when she took it up again. It’s said that when T.C. Steele was resident on the IU campus late in his life, he would let Prow accompany him on painting days and help her with her work.
Today’s piece, Spring at Ketcham’s Mill is a nice example of her output. The Ketcham Mill property was somewhere south of Bloomington and north of Bedford and was a victim of arson in 1909. Placing this painting as c. 1938, one assumes she’s at the site of the mill which was long since gone. Light, airy and slightly naïve – everything a good Hallie Prow should be! Excellent condition, recently cleaned and housed in the original, carved frame."
