Olive Parker Black, American 1868-1948
Good impressionist landscape, oil on canvas, signed lower left. Framed. Bio from An accomplished landscape painter, Olive Black was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She studied art with Hugh Bolton Jones at the Art Students League and with William Merritt Chase and Edwin Blashfield at the New York National Academy of Design in New York. She was considered one of Chase's best students and likely attended the Shinnecock Summer School of Art, which became known as Chase's school and was primarily attended by women.

She exhibited at the National Academy of Design from 1897 to 1930 and also exhibited in Boston and Philadelphia. To 1910, she lived in Cambridge, Massachusetts and then moved to New York City where she exhibited at the National Academy of Design from 1897 to 1930. She also exhibited with the Boston Art Club, the Art Club of Philadelphia and the Carnegie Institute. She was a member of the National Association of Women Artists, the New York Society of painters, American Artists Professional League and the Copley Society in Boston.
