He was at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, in 1863'5, studied art by himself, and opened a studio in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1874, giving his attention to portrait painting. After studying under Bouguereau in Paris, in 1877'8, he returned to Cleveland, and became instructor and co director in the Academy of fine arts there. He is especially skilful in painting draperies.
