Edwin Howland Blashfield         Pages: 1


(b Brooklyn, NY, 15 Dec 1848; d New York, 12 Oct 1936).

American painter. He began to study art seriously in 1867 in Paris under Léon Bonnat, with whom he remained (except between 1870 and 1874) until 1880. Blashfield’s mural style was significantly influenced by Pierre Puvis de Chavannes, Jean-Paul Laurens and Paul Baudry, whose decorations he had studied in the Panthéon while in Paris. He made a trip in 1887 to England, where he became briefly associated with the Anglo-American artists’ colony in Broadway, Glos, which included Edwin Austin Abbey, John Singer Sargent, Lawrence Alma-Tadema and Frederic Leighton.
