Biography from Abby M Taylor Fine Art:
Douglas Arthur Teed is remembered primarily for his role as an American Romantic. Although he worked as an Orientalist and painter of American Impressionist landscapes, he remained true to his romantic ideals throughout the course of his career as an artist.

Little information has been recorded of this artist; what has been documented both through history and his works were his travels and studies in England, India, Greece, London, Morocco, Munich, Paris, Rome, and the Near East.  One excellent and singular source of information on the artist is a catalogue titled Douglas Arthur Teed: an American Romantic, 1860-1929 by Pamela Beecher of the Arnot Art Museum. This exhibition catalogue details the life and works of the artist and allows a more intimate portrait of Teed.

The artist spent the years of 1907-1911 travelling through Cairo, Egypt, Morocco, India and Algeria where he completed many paintings and detailed studies, and where his Orientalist Romanticism fully came to fruition.  One such painting that is worth mentioning is Awaiting an Audience, featured on page 37 of the catalogue by Beecher.

After Teed returned to the United States, he exhibited thirty-four paintings of landscapes and Orientalist subject matter from November 1 through November 15, 1913 at the Arnot Art Museum, shortly after its opening.

Teed believed that “a picture should aim higher than to please the eye alone – that it should be so high in its intent, so true in its treatment that all normal minds should be benefited and educated by it…”
