Connecticut Yankee

Stevan Dohanos, (American, 1907-1994)


In Dohanos’s view, “A clean, strong, uncluttered image forms the basis of a good picture.”

The artist’s work is representative of the Social Realism school. Connecticut Yankee evokes New England’s farmers and countryside through powerful contrasts of light and dark and a strong composition.

Dohanos is best known for the covers he painted for The Saturday Evening Post magazine during the 1940s and 1950s.
