  Charles T. Stepule was a long-time resident of Hartford, Connecticut.  He was born in Wallingford, Connecticut in 1911 to Charles
and Mary Yokim Stepule.  He studied at the National Academy of Design, the Connecticut League of Art Students, the New York Art
Students League and in various studios in England, France, Spain and Italy.  For many years he also taught at the East Hartford,
Connecticut Art League. During World War II, he served in the Army.
  Stepule was a renowned artist and was known for his love of New England scenes, especially for his harbor paintings of Gloucester
and Rockport, Massachusetts.  In 1958, he established the Charles T. Stepule Gallery, the oldest gallery on Bearskin Neck, in
Rockport, MA.   He had a very long and very successful career in Rockport with his gallery and painted there and in the area for
almost 70 years.  He is a very well listed and highly collected artist whose work has appeared in numerous galleries, museums and at
auction.
  This is magnificent, vintage, oil on canvas painting, done in the classic impressionist style and is titled “Water Lilies”.  The painting
itself measures a large 20 by 28 inches.  It is a most unusual and rare Stepule painting in that it departs from the artist’s known and
conventional subject matter as he was known primarily as a painter of New England coastal scenes.  It is contained in the original
frame, from which it has never been removed.  It is in excellent, untouched condition!
