Samuel S Carr

Samuel S. Carr (1837–1908) was an American pastoral and landscape painter. Originally from England, he relocated to the U.S. (specifically, New York City,[1] where he later studied mechanical drawing in 1865) around 1862. He is recorded as having lived in Brooklyn from 1879 to 1907, during which he developed an eerie style of painting where shapes would be repeated, flipped, and rotated over and over, while still remaining lifelike.[2] He lived in Brooklyn along with his sister, Annie, and her husband, John Bond. He never married.[3] He was, at one time, the president of the Brooklyn Art Club and a member of a Masonic Lodge.[4] He is a fairly well known artist, with some of his paintings having sold at auction alongside the likes of Norman Rockwell and N.C. Wyeth, to the tune of over US$70,000, and often signed his pieces as "S.S. Carr".

He was at one point President of the Brooklyn Art Club, and was also a member of a Masonic Lodge.
