Biography

American painter and lithographer William Littlefield was also a writer, and art collector. In 1919 he began studying drawing and painting with Adeleine Wolever, an impressionist. Littlefield attended Harvard, studying art history, life drawing, and art technique and technical classes at the Fogg Art Museum. He then continued his private lessons with Wolever until 1923. In early October 1924, Littlefield moved to France to study art, spending most of his time in the South of France and Italy (Siena and Firenze) until 1927, then returning to Paris.

Littlefield returned to the United States in June 1929 and spent the summer painting in Falmouth, on Cape Cod, staying with his parents. He spent the winter of 1929-30 living in Boston, continuing to paint portrait commissions, Cape landscapes, and still lifes. During World War II he painted murals for the company day room and post headquarters on classical themes, easel paintings incorporating military objects, and stage sets for base theater productions.
