Theodore Robinson, after a Vermont boyhood, went to Paris in 1876 to study painting under Carolus-Duran and Gйrфme. He returned to New York in 1880, but after 1884 the artist divided his time between France and the United States. In 1887 Robinson visited Giverny where he met Monet and adopted Impressionist techniques. Always frail, he died at the early age of forty-four. 1
