Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Abbey Altson was an Australian painter of Classicism*. Born in Yorkshire, Abbey (Abraham) Altson moved to Melbourne, Australia to study in the early 1880’s. After several years there and having won a Gold Medal for his painting, he returned to England, stopping in Paris on the way to further his studies.

He settled in London becoming a successful painter of portraits and genre* pictures. He is best remembered today for his exercises in late classical painting, taking his lead from Lord Leighton, Alma Tadema, Waterhouse and Godward.

Towards the end of his life he settled in America, where he died in 1949.

Works of Abbey Altson are on display at the National Gallery of Victoria including The Golden Age, Meditation and Flood Sufferings.
