Abbott Fuller Graves (1859–1936 )  a fost un pictor si ilustrator american specializat in picturi de gradini si naturi statice cu flori, cu influente de impresionism european.

Graves s-a nascut in Weymouth, Massachusetts, pe 15 aprilie 1859, fiul lui James Griswold Graves si al Elizei Nicholls (Fuller). Sperand sa devina arhitect, Graves a urmat cursurile institutului Massachusetts Institute of Technology, insa nu a absolvit. Graves a plecat la Paris si in Italia in 1884 pentru a se perfectiona ca pictor de flori. In Europe, a locuit cu Edmund C. Tarbell. Dupa reintoarcerea la Boston in 1885, Graves a devenit profesor la Cowles Art School, unde preda si prietenul sau Childe Hassam .fara indoiala, cei doi pictori s-au influentat unul pe celalalt.  In 1887, Graves s-a reintors la Paris pentru a studia pictura de figuri la Academie Julien.
Graves s-a reintors la  Boston in 1891 si a locuit in orasul de coasta Kennebunkport, Maine, unde a predat ore de pictura in ulei si acuarela.  A continuat sa picteze scene de compozitie cu fermieri, pescari, pompieri si batrani capitani de vas din Kennebunkport. Multe dintre aceste lucrari au fost reproduse pe calendare si carti postale.

Dupa 1891, majoritatea lucrarilor lui Graves descrii gradini si peisaje cu flori, unele cu figuri feminine.  In 1891 a deschis propria lui scoala de arta in Boston. Ulterior scoala s-a mutat la Kennebunk, Maine. Din 1902 pana in 1905, Graves s-a angajat ca ilustrator comercial pentru reviste din Paris. Dupa 1922, Graves si-a petrecut iernile in New York City, unde facea parte in diferite organizatii ca National Academy of Design, National Arts Club, Salmagundi Club si Allied Artists of America.

Graves a murit in Kennebunkport pe 15 iulie 1936.

Edward Arthur Walton (15 aprilie 1860 Glanderston House, Barrhead, Renfrewshire – 18 martie 1922 Edinburgh) a fost un pictor scotian de peisaje si portrete, asociat scolii Düsseldorf de pictura.

Edward a fost unul din cei 12 copii ai lui Jackson Walton, un agent de vanzari din Manchester si pictor si fotograf priceput.

Walton s-a pregatit in arta la Kunstakademie din Düsseldorf, apoi la School of Art din  Glasgow. A fost prieten apropiat cu Joseph Crawhall, George Henry si James Guthrie si a locuit in Glasgow pana in 1894 unde a facut parte din grupul Glasgow School sau Glasgow Boys, toti mari admiratori ai lui Whistler. Locurile lor favorite unde pictau erau in Trossachs si Crowland din Lincolnshire. In 1883 Walton s-a alaturat lui Guthrie, care si-a luat o casa in satul Berwickshire din Cockburnspath. A pictat un insemnat numar de acuarele in Helensburgh in 1883, in care prezenta suburbia aglomerata si diferitii ei oameni. Aceste lucrari sunt considerate printre cele mai frumoase opere ale Glasgow School si apreciate pentru claritatea, culorile si puternica semnificatie decorativa. Principala sursa de venit a lui Walton au fost comenzile de portrete. In anii 1880 si 1890 a executat picturi murale in principala cladire a Expozitiei Internationale din  Glasgow  din 1888 si in alte cladiri din oras.
Walton a expus din 1880 atat in Glasgow, la Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts, in Edinburgh, la Royal Scottish Academy, fiind ales Asociat al Academiei in 1889 si membru plin in 1905. A stat in Londra din 1894 pana in 1904, a locuit in Cheyne Walk din Chelsea si a fost vecin cu Whistler si John Lavery.

Walton s-a casatorit cu artista Helen Law (nascuta Henderson) pe 29 noiembrie 1889. Helen a renuntat la cariera ei in pictura pentru a se ocupa de familie.
