Biography   Birge Harrison


Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Birge Harrison has been described as one of America's leading tonalist painters.  His specialties became moonlit landscapes, pueblos, and Indian genre, but unlike many of his Impressionist contemporaries, who liked to paint "en plein air," he painted from memory and preferred a muted palette.  He was one of the first generation of painters and teachers in the Woodstock, New York art colony, which under his influence became a center of Tonalist-style painting.  He also became a part of the Byrdcliffe Arts Colony, affiliated with the Arts and Crafts Movement.  In the 1880s, he did illustrations for Scribner's, magazine, which sent him on travels around the world.
