About Abbott Fuller Graves [1859-1936]
Abbott Fuller Graves was a renowned specialist in decorative open-air garden paintings and floral still lifes. His use of thick, impasto brushstrokes, bright colors and natural light, most evident in his later garden paintings, shows the influence of European impressionism. Born in Weymouth, Massachusetts in 1859, Graves studied both in New England and abroad. Although already considered one of the best flower painters in Boston, Graves went to Paris and Italy in 1884 to continue his studies. After returning to Boston in 1885, Graves became an instructor at the Cowles Art School. In 1887, Graves returned to Paris to study figure painting at the Academie Julien. After 1891, the majority of Graves's works depict gardens and floral landscapes. Often these oils, pastels and watercolors include female figures. Some portray exotic gardens of Spain and South America. The bright sunlight and bold use of color and paint, as well as the subject matter of the garden paintings, reflect the influence of European impressionism on Graves's work.
