Henry A. Ferguson
Henry A. Ferguson was born in Glens Falls, New York. During the 1860s, he moved to Albany and there received instruction from Homer D. Martin and George Boughton. Soon after, Ferguson moved to New York City where he kept a studio. Although always based in America, the artist traveled widely, painting scenes of Europe, Mexico, South America, and Egypt, which greatly contributed to his initial success; his views of New England were also well-loved. According to The New York Times, Ferguson mostly painted “landscapes and architectural paintings, the artist’s careful technique having brought him especial recognition in the latter class.” Ferguson frequently exhibited at The Art Institute of Chicago, Boston Art Association, and National Academy of Design. His work can be seen at The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, Vassar College, and Adirondack Museum.
