Arthur Hoeber was a distinguished Tonalist known for his poetic views of tidal wetlands and dramatic twilit skies. Born in New Jersey, he studied with James Carroll Beckwith in New York, associated with John Millais in London, and received further training from Jean Leon Gerome in Paris. He spent several years in the Barbizon art colony before returning to the United States to focus on the coastal landscapes of Cape Cod, Long Island, and New Jersey. Hoeber exhibited widely at venues including the Paris Salon, the National Academy of Design, the Corcoran Gallery Biennial, and the Art Institute of Chicago. He was also a respected art critic who wrote for The New York Times, the New York Globe, and Harper’s Weekly and published a book on The Barbizon Painters. Today his work is in The Newark Museum, The Hudson River Museum, the Georgia Museum of Art, and the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts.
