Aldro Thompson Hibbard is an American painter, known mainly for White Mountain landscapes, who was active until 1965.
Hibbard was unusually dedicated to the Plein-Aire method of painting. He would paint outside in all conditions, even during the coldest New England winters. For this reason, he is often referred to as "The Painter of New England Winters".
He had a particular love for the White Mountains and they constituted the subjects of the vast majority of his landscapes. His art was widely praised and admired. He had showings at the Boston Art Club and the Guild of Boston Artists. His winter scenes were particularly admired.
His formal education included attending the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in 1909. His initial arts education was undertaken at the Massachusetts Normal Art School. He also studied abroad in Europe under the auspices of a scholarship during the years of 1913 and 1914.
His long career-Aldro Thompson Hibbard exhibited for over forty-five years-came to an unfortunate end in 1965. By that time, the artist was losing his eyesight and it eventually progressed to the point where he was unable to paint any longer. He lived out his last years in Rockport, Massachusetts.
