Biography from Crocker Art Museum Store:
Painter and printmaker, Ambrose Patterson was born in Daylesford, Australia on June 29, 1877.  He studied at the National Gallery Art School in Melbourne and continued in Paris at Academies Colarossi and Julian under Lucien Simon, André Lhote, and Maxime Maufra.

In Paris he became a friend of compatriot, Nellie Melba, the famous soprano. Through her influence he was able to further study with John Singer Sargent. After a visit to his homeland in 1910, he spent the following seven years in Hawaii. In November 1917 he visited the Monterey Peninsula and was so impressed with its scenic beauty that he rented a house and remained a month to paint. He then settled in Seattle, WA where he taught painting at the University of Washington until 1947.

Although a resident of Seattle, Patterson made many trips to the San Francisco Bay area to exhibit and participate in the local art scene.

He died in Seattle in 1966.
