"The paintings of one of the least known of the Giverny Circle of American Impressionists, Henry Salem Hubbell, have recently received increased attention from collectors and art historians. He is the latest of a number of worthy American artists whose reputations have benefited from the resurgence of interest in studying and collecting paintings of the American Impressionists. This once-praised artist would have become well known again in the 1970s and 80s - when the paintings of other Giverny painters such as Richard Emil Miller and Frederick Carl Frieseke were rediscovered by art historians - had he lived out his life in the northeast, midwest or even California. Instead, Hubbell left his New York and Connecticut studios in 1924 to live in Miami, traveling outside Florida primarily to take portrait commissions. His portraits have usually been held by families or institutions and not put up for auction, and his genre paintings have remained in collections far from the centers of the art market. Therefore, until recently Hubbell's name had become dissociated from those of his friends and colleagues in France - especially Miller and Karl Beuhr with whom he was held in equal esteem."
