About

Portrait of a Young Girl Oil on canvas, c. 1895 Signed lower right (see photo) Edmondson studied in Paris with Lefebvre and Aman-Jean. This work shows the influence of Aman-Jean. Condition: Excellent, cleaned and re-varnished by a museum conservator. Canvas size: 17 1/4 x 12 1/4 inches William John Edmonson (1868-1966) William John Edmondson was born in Norwalk, Ohio. He was interested in art throughout his childhood and traveled to Paris to study at the Academie Julian with renowned French figure painter Jules Lefabvre. William John returned to the United States to complete a degree from the Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, and after four years he once again traveled to Paris, this time to study at the Aman-Jean Academy. Upon his return to the states, William John soon developed a reputation for portraiture and painted several prominent figures in turn-of-the-century Cleveland. He also liked to paint landscapes and often traveled West to paint. Edmondson's style is marked by abundant use of color and his remarkable patterns of light and dark. William John's work was shown at the Cleveland Museum of Art and he was awarded with the Penton Medal for Excellence from CMA in 1919. His work has also been showcased at art institutes in Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Detroit, Cincinnati, St. Louis, and Indianapolis.
