Edmund Charles Tarbell
West Groton, Massachusetts, 1862-New Castle, New Hampshire, 1938
Of modest extraction, he worked as a printer and illustrator, enrolling at the Boston Museum School in 1879. He attended the Académie Julian in Paris in 1884 but preferred travelling in Europe. He spent time in Munich, then in Rome and Venice. Returning to America, he developed a style merging academic draughtsmanship with Impressionist technique. He was a founder member of the Ten American Painters in 1897.
