Don Stone (b. 1929) is an internationally known modern impressionist painter known for his marine and landscape paintings. After Stone graduated high school, he was drafted into the Navy. While there, he painted portraits of the ship's officers. After returning from the Navy, Stone taught at Vesper George and the New England School of Art. He was also a part-time commercial artist and cartoonist at the Boston Post and Lowell Sun. It wasn't until the 1950's that Stone realized he wanted to be a fine artist. Inspired by a painting trip in Monhegan Island, ME, with a fellow artist, Paul Strisik, Stone spent the rest of his life painting Monhegan and the residents who lived there.
Stone held memberships in the National Academy of Design, American Watercolor Society (Dolphin Fellow), American Society of Marine Artists (Fellow), Salmagundi Club (Honorary Member), and the New England Watercolor Society (Lifetime Honorary Member). Stone's work has been exhibited in public museums, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Museum of Art and Cape Ann Museum.
