$1,800

About

"Woman with Two Dogs" is a 24" x 20" oil on canvas landscape of a woman with her two dogs in her backyard on an early autumn day. The painting is signed "William F Taylor" in the lower left and comes directly from the artist's estate. The work has been cleaned and varnished. Born in Ontario, Canada, William Taylor (Lumberville, Pa / 1883 - 1970) became a landscape painter whose reputation is associated with the New Hope School of Pennsylvania Impressionists. From 1905 to 1907, he studied in New York City at the Art Students League where John Sloan was one of his teachers. In 1908, he began another dimension to his career, publication writing, when he took the job of advertising editor for the New York Journal. He became a U.S. citizen, and in 1913 married Mary Smyth Perkins, an artist. In the early 1920s, Taylor and his wife began visiting Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and after 1925, moved to Lumberville as a result of friendship with William Lathrop, the first resident painter there of the group that became known as The Pennsylvania Impressionists William Taylor became most associated with the 'late' Pennsylvania Impressionist School, meaning the Bucks County artists who came to prominence after 1915. They were associated with the conservative group headed by Pennsylvania Academy teacher Daniel Garber who were determinably not swayed by the avant-garde influences that swept the art world after the 1912 Armory Show in New York City. Among this 'later' group, Taylor was one of the younger members. In October, 1928, William Taylor headed the Subscription Committee to purchase Phillips Mill in New Hope for the exhibition space for the New Hope Colony of Impressionist painters, one of the motives being that these younger painters including Taylor were having difficulty getting into the Pennsylvania Academy exhibitions. The first exhibition in the newly purchased Mill was held May 25, 1929, and included paintings by Taylor. William Taylor also became the editor of Towpath, one of two local magazines, which sometimes carried articles on the New Hope painters. One of Taylor's articles was on Edward Redfield. Towpath was a monthly publication from 1939 to 1941, and featured writing on environmental control issues, a subject of major interest to Taylor who wrote widely-read editorials on the subject.
