This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Thomas Sedgwick Steele was born at Hartford, CT June 11 1845, and died at
Swampscott, MA September 9, 1903. He attended Hartford High School, and
after high school was in the jewelry business with his father as a partner.
In his youth, he began drawing and painting.

In 1880 and 1882, he published two books on the woods of northern Maine, entitled "Canoe and Camera" and "Paddle and Portage." These books are lavishly illustrated with engravings and wood cuts (some depicting Steele's paintings, others from the photos taken on the trips described). His books were accompanied by an important early map of that region, which was published in at least three different editions, being one of the first maps ever created specifically for canoeists.

In 1887, he gave up jewelry for art full time. In 1890 Steele joined the Boston Art Club. His painting "Net Results" was much noted at the time.

Steele studied art in Paris with Marcius Simonds. Steele traveled to other
parts of Europe and North Africa. His exploits in Norway are recounted in
the book "A Voyage to Vikingland" (1896) again accompanied by a map and
lavish illustrations.

Steele was a member of the National Academy of Design, Salmagundi Club of
New York, and numerous genealogical societies. His style was very realistic
and his subjects were mostly recently hooked fish and still life scenes.
While he dabbled with impressionism and luminism, he believed that these
schools of art would not have significant staying power (oops).

Steele was twice married, first to Annie Eliza Smith and second to Sarah Cole
Goff, daughter of Rhode Island industrialist Lyman Goff. He apparently had
no descendants.
