About the Artist

Maurice Predergast (born Oct. 10, 1859, St. John's, Nfd., Can. — died Feb. 1, 1924, New York, N.Y., U.S.) was a Canadian-born U.S. painter. He moved with his family to Boston in 1868. After study in Paris (1891 – 94), he spent much of his career traveling and painting abroad. He was the first U.S. artist to fully absorb French Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. His lively street scenes feature floating geometric areas of brilliant decorative colour with a mosaiclike effect. He produced his most outstanding works in watercolour. In his later years he lived in New York City and exhibited with The Eight and in the 1913 Armory Show.
