Biography from Charleston Renaissance Gallery:
A painter, etcher and writer, Washburn was born in Minneapolis into an eminent, influential family of businessmen and politicians. He studied architecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Determined to become an artist, Washburn traveled to Spain to study with the impressionist Sorolla y Bistida, then moved to Paris to study in the atelier of Emile Besnard.

In America, Washburn enrolled at the Art Students League in New York, where he studied with William Merritt Chase and Henry Mowbray. In 1895 he spent the summer working under Chase at Shinnecock Hills, New York.

He returned to Paris and exhibited at the annual salons between 1896 and 1904. Later in his career, Washburn was awarded a gold medal at the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco. His paintings are in the collections of Luxembourg Museum; Bibliotheque National, Paris; Victoria and Albert Museum and British Museum, London; and the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.

A world traveler, Washburn lived for ten years in Brunswick, Georgia, during which time painted {Court House Grounds,} a lush, impressionist vision of a landscape in spring bloom.
