This biography from the Archives of AskART:

McConnell studied portraiture in Philadelphia and New York.  He also studied landscape painting with George Inness and continued his art training at the Academy Julien in Paris. Around 1883, he settled in Portland, Maine, doing commercial work which he sold to hotels and resorts.  He painted a  variety of subjects, including coastal and seascapes around Portland as well as White Mountain landscapes.  His White Mountain paintings date from 1892 to 1921.  His portraits hang in six state capitols, including Maine's.  He exhibited  at the Society of Independent Artists during his last few years and was a frequent exhibitor at the Portland Society of Art.

An accomplished artist, he was well known as a banjo player and minstrel.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Marine and landscape painter, George McConnell was born in 1852 in Steubenville, Ohio. He died in Portland, Maine in 1929. After he studied in New York City, Philadelphia and Paris, McConnell returned to Maine and opened a studio in 1883 in Portland, where he became a successful and popular landscape and marine artist. He was somewhat a recluse and was a member of the Society of Independent Artists. He was a realist who painted directly from nature.
