A painter of appealing impressionist works, Edward Henry Potthast (1857-1927) is best known for his vibrantly colored scenes of people at the beach. Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, which is far from the ocean, Potthast received his early art training at that city's McMicken School of Design. Drawn to the ocean, he sailed for Europe in 1881, to study in Antwerp & at Munich's Royal Academy.  Potthast returned to Ohio only briefly, working as a commercial lithographer while continuing his studies. By 1887, Potthast had once again set off for Europe, where he enrolled at the Academi√© Julian in Paris, exhibiting in the Salons of 1889, 1890, & 1891.  Finally settling in New York City, Potthast regularly traveled to Coney Island, Brighton Beach, & Far Rockaway with his easel & paints. On summer visits to Massachusetts & Maine, he depicted the sea's more dramatic side, producing compelling views of New England's rugged, rock-strewn coastline.
