This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Edwin A. Turner   1854 – 1899

Born in Branch County, Michigan in 1854, Edwin Turner spent much of his early life in unknown circumstances; also his initial art education is unknown.  He appears in the City Directory in Muskegon, Michigan in the early 1880’s.

Though an all around artist with an excellent reputation, he excelled as a portrait painter.  As such, he was employed to do portraits of the city’s major benefactors, Charles H. and Julia Hackley, and these paintings were hung in the Hackley Library in 1888.  He also did portraits of  other prominent individuals.  About that time he also established a studio in Grand Rapids. 

Hackley, taking a personal interest in Turner, sent him to Paris in 1891 where he studied under William Adolphe Bouguereau, an academic artist at the height of his influence.  Arriving back home in 1893, Turner soon moved to Grand Rapids.  In ill health for a number of months, he died of acute indigestion at his home in June of 1899.

The newspaper obituary in the Grand Rapids Evening Press of June 19, 1899, stated that after receiving art training in Europe, “He had been steadily improving in his work with the brush and his pictures were coming to more and more merit and receiving widespread attention.”
