Painter, illustrator, lecturer and art critic Arthur Hoeber had a long and prolific career. Born in New York City in 1854, he studied at the Cooper Union Art School, the Art Students League under Carroll Beckwith, l’École des Beaux-Arts with Gérôme, G. Courtois & R. Collin. He also painted at the French artist colony at Concarneau.
Hoeber exhibited extensively, especially throughout the United States. His work was displayed at the National Academy of Design, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Pan -American Exposition of 1901, and our own Corcoran Gallery of Art. However, while he lived in France, he exhibited at both the 1883 and 1885 Paris Salon.
Eventually, Hoeber returned home from his artistic experiences abroad, and settled into his specialty: painting the wetlands of Cape Cod, Long Island and New Jersey.
