Birge Harrison
Snowy Road at Kingston New York

About

Signed lower left National Academy of Design Label Verso: "Snowy Road at Kingston, N.Y." Address/Woodstock N.Y. Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Birge Harrison has been described as one of America's leading tonalist painters. His specialties became moonlit landscapes, pueblos, and Indian genre, but unlike many of his Impressionist contemporaries, who liked to paint "en plein air," he painted from memory and preferred a muted palette. He was one of the first generation of painters and teachers in the Woodstock, New York art colony, which under his influence became a center of Tonalist-style painting. He also became a part of the Byrdcliffe Arts Colony, affiliated with the Arts and Crafts Movement. In the 1880s, he did illustrations for Scribner's, magazine, which sent him on travels around the world. He first enrolled at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and advised by John Singer Sargent, went to Paris in 1875. He studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, with Alexander Cabanel, and in the atelier of Carolus Duran. Then he traveled world wide for Scribner's including to India, Australia, and the South Seas. In England he was influenced by the atmospheric effects of the works of John Crome and John Constable, and he concluded that the highest achievement in modern art was landscape painting. He returned to New York, where he taught landscape painting and was Director at the Art Students League. Stressing the importance of the big vision and atmospheric effects and mood in landscape painting, he founded the Woodstock Art Colony and made his home in that picturesque Dutch region of the Catskills. He also painted New York City scenes and snow scenes. From 1880, he made several trips West, living briefly in Espanola, New Mexico and Santa Barbara, California. From 1906 to 1911, he served as Director of a summer school at Woodstock under a program run by the Art Students League, and he was credited with being a major positive influence on the development of the Woodstock Art Colony. Exhibitions include: Expo Universale, Paris, 1889 (medal); Columbian Exposition (Chicago), 1893; Buffalo Exposition, 1901; Louisiana Purchase Exposition (St Louis), 1904; Panama Pacific International Exposition, 1915.
