One of the best-known plein-air American impressionist artists, Anthony Thieme claimed, "the open air is my studio”. He was born on February 20, 1888 in Rotterdam, Holland and studied in Germany under George Hacker in Dusseldorf. Later, in Turin, Italy, Giuseppe Mancini and Carlo Bini showed him more in the wonderful world of art.
Already having an insatiable taste for art, when he immigrated to America in 1917, he began painting Broadway backdrops in New York and eventually settled in Rockport, Massachusetts where he established his studio. It was here in Rockport where he found his impressionist- inspired views of the local harbor, streets, quarries, and coastline.
