This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Robert Crannel Minor, Sr., a landscapist in the Barbizon style, was born in 1839 in New York City.  His experience in France in the mid-1860s, where he was influenced by Camille Corot and Narcisse Diaz, was pivotal in his career and the formation of his aesthetic point of view.  He had earlier studied in New York City with Alfred C. Howland.

Minor traveled in Italy and Germany, studying, as well, with Gustave Boulanger and von Luppen at the Antwerp Academy after his Barbizon experience.

In England in 1873-1874, Minor was represented in exhibitions at the Paris Salon of 1872, the Grosvenor Gallery and London's Royal Academy.  Back in America in the latter year, Minor set up a studio in Greenwich Village in New York City. 

His poetic landscapes of New York's Adirondack Mountains and European locales were well received.  He exhibited at the National Academy of Design, where he was made an Associate member in 1888, an Academician in 1897.

He died in 1904 in Waterford, Connecticut.

Robert Crannel Minor's memberships, in addition to the Academy, included the Salmagundi Club; Societe Artistique et Litteraire of Antwerp; Society of American Artists; and Society of Landscape Painters. His paintings are in the National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D. C.; and the Florence Griswold Museum, Lyme Historical Society, Old Lyme, Connecticut.
