William Partridge Burpee (1846-1940)

Together with acclaimed New England masters Winslow Homer and Fitz Hugh Lane, William Partridge Burpee is duly recognized for painting some of the most superb Impressionist seascapes and winter landscapes of his generation. Having pursued art since his childhood in Rockland, Maine, Burpee’s long artistic career encompassed several styles, including the influences of Impressionism, Luminism and Tonalism. The effect of light within his work was of principal importance.

Burpee exhibited at such prestigious institutions as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Corcoran Gallery in Washington D.C., and his works can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, MA, Cheekwood, TN, the Columbia Museum of Art, the Louisiana State University Museum of Art, the William A. Farnsworth Museum and the Portland Museum of Art.
