This biography from the Archives of AskART:
An artist who spent his entire life in Ashfield, Massachusetts, Edwin Elmer was a portrait, genre and still life painter who was also a highly creative inventor of machines that made whip-snaps for shingling horses, for shingling houses, and for other purposes.

In the 1899, he studied with Benjamin Wells Champney at the National Academy of Design.

His trompe l'oeil painting, Magic Glasses, is regarded as highly unique in the still life genre of American painters because it is a study of magnification whereby a landscape is reflected through two windows into the glass. The views are bent and distorted by the convex surface. This device was popular among Dutch still life painters, but virtually unknown amongst Americans.

Elmer committed suicide in 1923.
