Theodore Robinson was born in Vermont in 1852. He first studied at the Art Institute of Chicago followed by work in New York, Paris and Barbizon, France. Robinson was one of the first American artists to settle in Giverny and one of the only artists to enjoy a friendship with that town’s most famous resident, Claude Monet. In 1892 Robinson left Giverny to return to New York. His style was a classic, soft impressionism that was still evolving upon his early death in 1896.
