Dodge MacKnight began his career as a painter of theatre scenery. From 1883-1891 he traveled to Europe to study at Fernan & Cormon in Paris and exhibited at the Paris Salon (1885-87) and at John S. Sargent’s Studio, London (1890). He became a friend of Van Gogh’s in Arles. Working primarily in watercolors, his work falls under the category of Post-impressionism.

Returning to the United States, he worked and lived in New Orleans, Greenfield, MA, Mystic, CT, and finally settling on Cape Cod. MacKnight continued to travel widely painting landscapes.

His work is held in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston) and the Fogg Art Museum (Cambridge, MA).
