Comments: An accomplished Impressionist landscape painter of the Boston School. In 1900, he began teaching a summer class at

Annisquam, MA, and one of his first students was N.C. Wyeth. He painted at Fenway Studios, 1908-10. He traveled extensively,

painting in Europe, North Africa, and Mexico. His last major exhibition was in 1927; thereafter, the style of his work weakened as he

aged in Vermont. In 1939, a studio fire destroyed a significant portion of his life's work.
