Name: Ernest Parton
Dates: (1845 - 1933)
Nationality: American
Biography: Born in Hudson, New York, Ernest Parton received no formal artistic training except for two winters spent under the tutelage of his older brother, the painter Arthur Parton (1842 1914). During a visit to England in 1873, Ernest Parton decided to remain there for the rest of his life; for that reason, his American views are quite rare. A member of the Artists’ Fund Society in New York and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters in London, Parton exhibited at the Paris Expositions Universelles of 1899 and 1900 and at the Royal Academy, Suffolk Street Gallery, and Grosvenor Gallery in London. A landscape and genre painter, Parton produced works that include views of the United States, Switzerland, France, England, and Italy. His landscape The Waning of the Year was purchased for the Chantrey Trust of the Tate Gallery in London in 1879, and in the same year his Woodland Home was acquired for the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool. His work is also in the Sunderland Art Gallery and the museums of Reading and Salford, England.
