A student at the Lowell Institute in Lowell, Massachusetts, William Closson had an early career as an engraver and worked from 1881 to 1883 in Europe where he engraved masterpieces for "Harper's" magazine. In 1888, he created a wood-engraving technique, and he did engraving for Louis Prang.

In 1890, he changed his focus from engraving to painting with oils and pastels.
