This biography from the Archives of AskART:
An American Pre-Rafaelite or Naturalist artist, Robert J. Pattison was a landscape painter influenced in his painting by Thomas Farrer, an English expatriate artist who in turn was influenced by John Ruskin, one of the founders in England of the Pre-Rafaelites.  These painters were committed to the study of nature as the basis for art, and to the return to "pure" art such as that painted in Italy before Raffaello Sanzio Raphael (1483-1520) injected 'grandeur' into what Ruskin perceived as heretofore purity in art.

The Americans including Pattison adapted the coloration and detailing of their English counterparts and focused on still life and landscape, but stayed away from the figural depiction.

Pattison was born in New York City and was active there and in Brooklyn from 1858.  He was a student at City College of New York, and was a member of the Brooklyn Art Association.  The White Mountains of New Hampshire were a favorite painting subject for him.

Exhibition venues included the National Academy of Design, the Brooklyn Art Association, and the Yale School of Fine Arts.
