Biography William Dannat
William Turner Dannat, painter was born in New York City in 1853 to wealthy parents and taken abroad at the age of twelve. He studied architecture in Hanover and Stuttgart before enrolling in the art academics of Florence and Munich.In the winter of 1877-78 Dannat returned briefly to New York, where he showed two works in the first exhibition of the Society of American Artists. In 1879 he went back to Paris and studied under Carolus-Duran and Mihaly Munkacsy. Munkacsy's style, with its forceful realism and debt to Spanish painting, profoundly influenced Dannat's art during the early 1880s. Interestingly Dannat listed Munkacsy as his only teacher during this time even though he received instruction from other prestigious instructors.
