Biography


In 1910, Austin Chester, a critic in Windsor Magazine, lauded Ernest Parton as a “student of the theory of light, ‘who had succeeded in apprehending and showing the abstract beauty of nature.’” Parton exhibited at home and abroad at the National Academy of Design, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Paris Salon, and the Paris Exposition of 1899. Both he and his brother and fellow landscapist, Arthur Parton, grew up along the Hudson River in Hudson, New York and refused formal training in favor of painting from nature. Paintings by Ernest Parton can now be seen at the Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Columbia County Historical Society.
