Edmund C. Tarbell was an American Impressionist artist trained in Paris, who became so influential an instructor at the School of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts that his followers were dubbed the "Tarbellites." He became known for plein air figure studies which combined masterful form, color and brushwork. He was also in demand as a portrait painter, limning likenesses of prominent people of the day, including President Wilson, Coolidge and Hoover. A member of the Ten American Painters, a founder of the Guild of Boston Artists, and winner of numerous medals and prizes, his work hangs in the nation's major collections.
