Brief Biography-John Henry Twachtman was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1853, where the figurative portraitist Frank Duveneck taught him. He went on to study at the Munich Academy and the Académie Julian in Paris. In Greenwich, Connecticut, where he settled in 1890, he befriended and painted with Julian Alden Weir. They were part of the Cos Cob art colony, including Childe Hassam and many other impressionist artists. Twachtman and Weir instructed at the Art Students League of New York. Twachtman died suddenly at the age of forty-nine in 1902. The Cos Cob art colony helped organise the monumental Armory Show in 1913. The show included some of Twachtman's paintings.
