Washington DC’s prestigious Cosmos Club comes to life in Everett Longley Warner’s watercolor – a surreal wintry scene depicting the Washington D.C.’s Cosmos Club.

Birchknoll Antiques brings a market-fresh Everett Longley Warner watercolor to market.

Influenced by leading participants at the inception of the American Impressionist movement, including Childe Hassam, Willard Metcalf, Guy C. Wiggins and Wilson H. Irvine who painted in the loose bright style, Warner became an accomplished artist in his own right. De-accessioned by a family member, The Cosmos Club has never been to market and is in original condition and is in keeping E.L. Warner’s finest works.

The Cosmos Club stands as "the closest thing to a social headquarters for Washington's intellectual elite." So wrote Western scholar Wallace Stegner in his acclaimed work, Beyond the Hundredth Meridian. His judgment echoed the oft-repeated statement of World War II days that the most significant concentration of Washington's public-policy intellectuals centered at the Cosmos Club. (reference cosmos-club.org). Warner’s watercolor offers a timeless vision of this revered club.

Everett Longley Warner (1877 – 1963) lived a storied life – while residing with his family in Washington, at the age of 14, Warner began his art studies at the Arts Students' League under E.C. Messer. As a student, Warner was selected for art competitions at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, and the National Academy of Design. He also served as an art critic for The Evening Star at the age of 18.

In the early 1900’s Warner traveled to Paris to broaden his artistic talent. Upon returning to the United States, he began his association with the Old Lyme Art Colony, which under the sponsorship of Mrs. Florence Griswold, flourished as the “American Barbizon”.

In 1917 and later in the early 1940’s, E.L. Warner was commissioned by the U.S. Navy as a camouflage expert. It was during his later stay in Washington as a Chief Civilian Aid to the Navy, he familiarized himself with the Cosmos Club. True to his personality, he enhanced a large mural inside the Club and in that timeframe created “The Cosmos Club” in addition to other works in the Washington D.C. surroundings.

In addition to teaching his profession at Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh, Everett Longley Warner held numerous memberships in art associations including but not limited to the National Academy of Design, American Watercolor Society, Washington Watercolor Club and the American Art Association of Paris. He exhibited nationally and was afforded numerous accolades including awards from the National Academy of Design, Lyme Art Association and the World’s Fair in New York among others. Everett Warner retired to Westmoreland New Hampshire. He passed away in 1963.

The watercolor – The Cosmos Club, is housed in the artists’ original frame; is signed lower right and retains original labels en verso from the Old Lyme Art Club as well as the National Art Club (NY) Members Exhibition.
