Biography   Abbott Thayer


Around 1920, David Reasoner and two other Boston artists (Henry O'Connor (1891-1975) and Frederick Rhodes Sisson (1893-1962)) became apprentices and assistants to Abbott Handerson Thayer at the well-known painter's home and studio in Dublin, New Hampshire. Thayer's publications about the "concealing coloration of animals" had influenced the development of Allied wartime camouflage during WWI.  In various sources, Reasoner, O'Connor and Sisson have been described as Thayer's "copyists" (they made precise duplicates of his unfinished paintings, from which he then went on to make different finished versions). Also cited as an assistant in Thayer's studio was a painter named Grace Dredge (1895-?), originally from Des Moines, Iowa.
