Autographed letter of Artist Dwight Williams 1892

Here is an original letter dated Dec 26th 1892 from Dwight Williams, Cazenovia.

The letter is to Mr Walker and is a four page personal letter.

Dwight Williams was an artist famous for painting many scenes of Cazenovia.

American landscape painter, b. Hartford, Conn., studied in Paris under C. F. Daubigny and Jacquesson de la Chevreuse.

Upon his return to the United States he became established as an artist and teacher in New York City.

He later taught at Smith for 38 years and donated to the college the art gallery that bears his name.

He painted rosy, atmospheric landscapes.

Large collections of his work are at Smith and in the Freer Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. Friend painter Gilbert Munger painted these Cazenovia, New York paintings with him.

They are of American scenes that are missing the moodiness and introspection of the Barbizon works and are structured with bolder shapes.
