Milton Herbert Bancroft
(1867 - 1947)
Biography from AskART:
Born in Newton, Massachusetts, he became an Impressionist painter of portraits, landscapes, figures, and murals. He was much influenced by his stay at Giverny, France where he adopted the effects of sun dappled light on figures and landscape that were espoused by Richard Miller, Louis Ritman, Frederick Frieseke, and George Biddle.
He attended Massachusetts Normal Academy School in Boston and from 1883 to 1886, studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. From 1886 to 1892, he taught at Swathmore College and served briefly as Superintendent at the Pennsylvania Academy.
In 1894, he left for Europe and spent five years of intense training in Paris, studying with Louis Giradot and Gustave Courtois at the Colarossi. Returning to the United States, he earned much respect for his talents and was commissioned to do a mural, "Court of the Seasons," for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco.
