Arthur Wesley Dow

Arthur Wesley Dow was born in Ipswich, Massachusetts in 1857. His early training in Worcester, Massachusetts with the portrait and historical painter Anna K. Freeland was followed by his apprenticeship in Boston with the painter, James M. Stone. Encouraged to continue his studies in Europe, Dow set sail in 1884 for Paris where he became a pupil of Gustave Boulanger and Jules Lefèbre. In Paris his artistic ideals were revolutionized, after witnessing the new wave of styles and techniques-much of which he wasn’t partial to, but never the less was inspired by.
