Theodore Earl Butler American (1861 - 1936)
Theodore Earl Butler, one of America’s most innovative Post-Impressionist painters, did not receive the recognition he deserved in his lifetime, since he was all but eclipsed by his famous father-in-law, Claude Monet. Born in 1861, Butler enrolled in the Art Students League in New York, then continued his studies at various art academies in Paris.
He first traveled to Giverny in the summer of 1888, the village that was to become the Impressionist artists’ colony.
