Synopsis

Edmund Charles Tarbell (April 26, 1862 – August 1, 1938) was an American Impressionist painter. He was a member of the Ten American Painters. Tarbell became famous for impressionistic, richly hued images of figures in landscapes. His later work shows the influence of Johannes Vermeer, a 17th-century Dutch painter. In such works, Tarbell typically portrays figures in genteel Colonial Revival interiors; the studies of light and quiet are executed with restrained brushwork and color. Tarbell painted portraits of many notable individuals, including industrialist Henry Clay Frick, Yale University President Timothy Dwight, and U.S. presidents Woodrow Wilson, Calvin Coolidge, and Herbert Hoover.
