Portrait of Bertram Bruestle as a Boy


After studying art in Boston as a young man, Robert Vonnoh went to Paris to study and enrolled at the Academie Julian in 1881.  Throughout the 1880s he returned to Paris occasionally, worked as Instructor in Painting at the Boston Museum School, and established himself as a portrait painter.  By 1887, he was spending time at Grez-sur-Loing near Fontainebleau, where he adopted Impressionism, earning him the reputation of being one of the first American painters to do so. In 1891 he was teaching at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.

Vonnoh exhibited widely in Paris and the United States, exhibiting more work at the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago than any other American artist.
