Theodore Butler (1861-1936)

Giverny Trees, Wind and Snow (1892-1893)
Provo, Brigham Young University Museum of Art

Giverny Church, Sunset (1910)

Theodore Earl Butler, (1861–1936) was an American impressionist painter. He was born in Columbus, Ohio, and moved to Paris to study art. He befriended Claude Monet in Giverny, and married his stepdaughter, Suzanne Hoschedé. After her death he married her sister, Marthe Hoschedé. Butler was a founding member of the Society of Independent Artists.

Butler's chosen subjects were domestic scenes of family and friends and the French landscape. Although his Impressionistic approach to painting sometimes reflected the influence of his father-in-law, his work also suggests Post-Impressionist tendencies as well.

Gertrude Fiske

Gertrude Fiske (American, 1878-1961)

Woman and Flowers



Gertrude Fiske took up the painter’s tools at a time when women were becoming more active in the public sphere of American life. Although still the minority, Fiske and other Boston women participated in the Museum of Fine Art’s school, which set forth a strict curriculum spanning seven years. Here, Fiske enjoyed the mentorship of artists such as Edmund Tarbell, a member of the American Impressionist group called “The Ten,” as well as Frank Benson. Between the years 1904 and 1912, Fiske also studied with Charles Woodbury at the seaside village of Ogunquit, ME; this locale served as inspiration for many of Fiske’s brightly colored beach compositions. 
Due to her artistic talents, Fiske was a major figure of the Boston School and also a member of women artists known as “The Pine Hill Girls.” Today her works are featured in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Fiske and her woman compatriots were recently the subject of an exhibition titled “A Studio of Her Own: Women Artists in Boston, 1870-1940.”
