New York, New York, 1836-Roma 1923
Overcoming his father's opposition, he studied under Matteson and went to Europe (Paris, Rome, Florence and Venice) in 1856 to pursue his studies. He settled in Florence for over three years, frequenting the Macchiaioli and painting in Umbria and Volterra with Hotchkiss. After returning to New York where he worked diligently, he was soon back in Paris and Rome, only returning to America sporadically. He consolidated his ties with Nino Costa and frequented the In Arte Libertas group.
