Ann Lofquist was born in Washington, D.C., and studied at the Washington University School of Fine Arts, St. Louis, Missouri. She received a Master of Fine Arts from Indiana University, Bloomington in 1990. After graduation, she moved to Brunswick, Maine, where she was a professor of art at Bowdoin College from 1990 to 2001.

Lofquist begins her work with small, plein-air oil sketches like this one, offering an "encounter with nature. I can't just take a photograph." These studies become the source for larger paintings created in her studio.

Her work can be found in the collections of the Arnot Art Museum, Elmira, New York; Bowdoin College Museum of Art, Brunswick, Maine; and the Bates College Museum of Art, Lewiston, Maine.

Good estate condition, with light retouching executed by the artist.
