Name: William H. Willcox
Dates: (1831 - 1919)
Nationality: American
Biography: William H. Willcox lived in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 1849, the year that he exhibited two pencil drawings at the American Institute of the City of New York and sold two landscapes to the American Art Union. He moved to Philadelphia in 1850, lived in Germantown, and exhibited regularly at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts from 1852 to 1868 and from 1880 to 1917. The titles of the landscapes he exhibited there indicate that he painted in upstate New York, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, and the countryside around Philadelphia. Willcox also exhibited at the National Academy of Design from 1853 to 1869. He was primarily a landscape painter but occasionally painted portraits and genre scenes.

Willcox’s style was quite similar to that of his colleague and friend, William Trost Richards.  The two artists often worked together and corresponded frequently on subject matter.
