Born in Washington, DC in 1864, the under-researched artist Ernest L. Major immersed himself into the Boston milieu that orbited around Edmund Tarbell and Frank W. Benson.  E. C. Messer was Major's first instructor at the Corcoran Gallery of Art and by the early 1880s, he was studying under William Merritt Chase at the Art Students League in New York City.  At the age of twenty-one, Major was the first to win the Hallgarten Art Scholarship, which at that time included travel expense (showing 500 of 4934 characters).
