About Ernest Lawson

  • Ernest Lawson (March 22, 1873 – December 18, 1939) was a Canadian-American painter and a member of The Eight, a group of artists who formed a loose association in 1908 to protest the narrowness of taste and restrictive exhibition policies of the conservative, powerful National Academy of Design.
  • Though Lawson was primarily a landscape painter, he also painted a small number of realistic urban scenes.
  • His painting style is heavily influenced by the art of John Henry Twachtman, J.
  • Alden Weir, and Alfred Sisley.
  • Though considered an American Impressionist, Lawson falls stylistically between Impressionism and realism.
