This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter, lecturer, teacher and also a descendant of Daniel Webster, E Ambrose Webster was a prominent and pioneering proponent of modernism on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.  By his own painting as well as lecturing and writing, he promoted a style that moved beyond Impressionism to a Fauve-like handling of color.  One of his writings was a booklet on color.  He was criticized by traditionalists for participating in the 1913 New York Armory Show that showcased modernism.

Webster was born in Chelsea, Massachusetts, and studied at the Boston Museum School of Fine Art with Frank Benson and Edmund Tarbell.  From 1896 to 1898, he studied in Paris at the Academie Julian with Jean Paul Laurens and Benjamin Constant.

In 1900 in Provincetown, he established a summer school of painting, the Webster Art School, and was active in the Provincetown Art Association.  He also traveled frequently in Bermuda.

Exhibition venues included the Boston Art Club, the Pennsylvania Academy, the Corcoran Gallery and the Art Institute of Chicago.
