Carl Henry Ahrens
Birth: Feb. 15, 1862
Guelph
Ontario, Canada
Death: Feb. 27, 1936
Toronto

Artist. Prominent in early 20th century North American art, he was most noted for his landscape paintings. Studying with artists William Merritt Chase, George Inness and William Keith, his work ranged from tonalism (painting that utilized the overall tone of colored atmosphere or mist) in the early part of his career to post-impressionistic in the latter part. While he did do portraits, he is best known for his tree studies. (bio by: Kim Bullock)
