Born in Nutley, New Jersey, Arthur Hoeber became a noted landscape artist in Tonalist style, with simple composition, broad skyscapes, and serene, quiet, poetic views often inspired by coastal scenery of Cape Cod and Long Island. Luminism was a part of his painting style, with reflected bright lights often appearing in his dramatic, panoramic cloud-filled skies.

His paintings were sometimes referred to as "spare meditations" (Elliott), and usually his titles referenced the exact location of the work, the season or time of day. He also did figure and genre subjects including peasants toiling in the fields when he was painting in the French countryside.
