In 1866 the family sailed for Albany, New York, the mother dying en route. At the age of 23 he opened an art studio in Albany. Two years later he went to New York where he studied briefly at the Art Students League. He traveled extensively and painted in England, France and Holland before returning to America. Today his work can be found at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Corcoran Gallery of Art.
