This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known for his bucolic landscapes with grazing cows, Thomas Craig was born in Philadelphia where he remained until 1889 and then moved to New York City until 1899.  He finally settled in Rutherford, New Jersey, but maintained a summer studio in Woodland Valle, near Phoenicia, New York.

He was largely self taught, but his activity in the Philadelphia Sketch Club, 1873 to 1876, suggests he was a student of Thomas Eakins.  He exhibited for forty-five years at the National Academy of Design.  He frequently painted in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

Biography from Covington Fine Arts Gallery, Inc.:
A painter of pastoral scenes, Thomas Bigelow Craig was born in Philadelphia and spent the first 40 years of his life there.  He was primarily self-taught but did study at the Pennsylvania Academy and began exhibiting there in 1869.  In 1889 he moved to NYC and then on to Rutherford NJ in 1899.

An artist of largely regional interest, Craig was known for his paintings of grazing cows, quiet streams and highlighted pastures, all which were hallmarks of his work.

He was a Member of the National Academy, Salmagundi Club and Artists Fund Society and exhibited at these venues as well as at the Pennsylvania Academy, Philadelphia Art Club (1876), Philadelphia Exposition, Art Institute of Chicago, Boston Art Club, Brooklyn Art Association and Society for Independent Artists.

Michael David Zellman, 300 Years of American Art
