About the Artist

Arthur Watson Sparks, United States, (1870-1919), had early training in the field of architecture and not until the end of the nineteenth century did he begin to study art and develop his painting skills. He studied in the U.S. and in France at the Julian Academy and the Ecole des Beaux Arts for ten years.

Sparks developed into a landscape and genre painter with a reputation as a leading U.S. Impressionist artist. His works, primarily of rural France and the American west, are characterized by vivid colors and scenes of relaxed figures in dappled, suffused light. [DES-4/07]
