Cadmus (1868-1939), Paul Cadmus' father, was born in Bloomfield, New Jersey, and studied during the 1890s at the National Academy of Design in New York. The lessons he received from the best known of instructors at the time, Robert Henri, are readily apparent in his light-dappled, richly-colored watercolors. During the early 1900s, Egbert worked as a commercial artist to support his family. He moved to Lyme, Connecticut in 1931 and became a central member of the Lyme Art Colony, known for its close group of Impressionist artists.
