Orlando Rouland Art Studio // 1926

Born in Illinois, Orlando Rouland (1873-1945) became a painter of rural landscapes, scenes of New York City, and portraits of actors, inventors and Presidents. He lived in New York and resided in Marblehead in summers, taking advantage of the natural scenery and rustic homes for his landscapes. In Marblehead, Rouland formed the Marblehead Arts Association and was President of the North American Artists Group. He built this small building in 1926 as his studio while he spent time in the seaside town, with the large window to provide natural light into the interior. The Colonial Revival style studio has been converted to a residence.
