(1870 - 1952)
Anna Mary Richards Brewster was active/lived in Massachusetts, New York. Anna Brewster is known for landscape, genre painting, illustration.
Born in Germantown, Pennsylvania, Anna Brewster was the daughter of
noted marine and landscape painter, William Trost Richards whose
reputation eclipsed hers. However, she earned a prestigious reputation
as an active professional artist for fifty-five years. Her early work
reflected the tight detailing of her father's style, but as she learned
to paint faster, her canvases became looser and looser in style, and
many have a warm tonality and atmosphere.
She learned painting
technique from her father and by age fourteen was exhibiting at the
National Academy in New York City. In 1888, she studied at the Cowles
Art School in Boston under Dennis Bunker and later studied in New York
with John LaFarge and William Merritt Chase. S ... Displaying 750 of 1768 characters.
