Robert Henry Logan (1874 to 1942)

American Impressionist Robert Logan was born in Waltham, Massachusetts on June 24, 1874, and as a young man, enrolled in Brown and Nichols School in Cambridge. Soon after, he studied with Frank Benson and Edmund Tarbell at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. After winning the school’s top drawing prize in the early 1890s, Logan left to study in Paris at the Sorbonne and the Academie Julian. He painted while on trips to various European nations, including Spain, Germany, Morocco, England, Italy, and Belgium. In 1905, Logan received the Prix de Rome and exhibited at the Salon of the Societe des Artistes Franacaises in Paris. Logan eventually returned to Waltham where he continued to paint, in addition to teaching, woodworking, and ironworking.
