Born in Hudson, New York, Ernest Parton studied art for two winters under the tutelage of his older brother, the painter Arthur Parton (1842–1914). He visited Great Britain in 1873 and decided to remain there permanently. A member of the Artists’ Fund Society of New York and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters of London, Parton exhibited at the Paris expositions 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, Great Britain, and Italy. His landscape The Waning of the Year was purchased for the Tate Gallery of Art in London in 1879, the same year his Woodland Home was acquired for the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool. Parton’s work is represented in a number of other British museums as well.
