Ernest Lawson

Lawson, Ernest, 1873–1939, American landscape painter, b. San Francisco. He studied art in Kansas City, in New York City under Twachtman and J. Alden Weir, and in Paris. On returning to New York he joined the independent artists' group called the Eight. His impressionist landscapes won him many awards, and he is represented in most leading American galleries. High Bridge (Whitney Mus., New York City) is a characteristic and fine example of his work.
