Frederick Arthur Bridgman (10 noiembrie 1847 – 13 ianuarie 1928) a fost un pictor american cunoscut pentru picturile lui cu subiecte  „Orientaliste”.  Nascut in Tuskegee, Alabama, a fost fiul unui medic. A inceput ca desenator in New York City, pentru American Bank Note Company in 1864–65 si a studiat arta in aceiasi ani la Brooklyn Art Association si la National Academy of Design. A plecat la Paris in 1866, iar in 1867 a intrat in atelierul renumitului pictor academic Jean-Léon Gérôme (1824–1904), unde a fost influentat de stilul si temele orientale ale lui Gérôme. Dupa aceea, Parisul a devenit sediul sau central. In 1874 a fost ales in National Academy of Design ca membru asociat, apoi a devenit membru plin in 1881. Bridgman a facut prima sa calatorie in Africa de Nord intre 1872 si 1874, impartindu-se intre Algeria si Egipt. Acolo a executat aproximativ trei sute de schite, care au devenit sursa pentru cateva picturi in ulei si care au atras imediat atentia. Bridgman a devenit cunoscut ca „Gérôme american”, cu toate ca Bridgman va adopta ulterior o estetica mai naturalista, punand accentul pe culorile luminoase si stilul pictural. Lucrarea lui importanta de dimensiuni mari, ‘The Funeral Procession of a Mummy on the Nile’, din Salonul de la Paris (1877), cumparata de James Gordon Bennett, Jr., i-a adus Crucea Legiunii de Onoare. Desi Bridgman a fost legat mai mult de Franta, popularitatea sa in America nu a scazut deloc.

Franz A. Bischoff (14 ianuarie 1864 – 5 februarie 1929) a fost un pictor american cunoscut initial pentru pictura pe portelan, picturi de flori si peisaje din California. S-a nascut in Steinschönau, Austria (actualmente Kamenický Šenov in Republica Ceha.A emigrat in Statele Unite pe cand era adolescent si a devenit cetatean naturalizat. Pe cand era in Europa, a inceput sa se pregateasca in design aplicat, acuarela si  decoratii ceramice.
Dupa ce a ajuns in  Statele Unite, Bischoff a lucrat in New York, Fostoria, Ohio, Detroit, Michigan si Dearborn, Michigan. Cand se afla in Detroit si Dearborn, el a avut succes ca pictor pe  portelan, ca profesor de tehnici, precum si ca manufacturier de ceramici smaltuite si ca profesor de pictura in acuarela.

Franz Bischoff s-a hotarat sa viziteze California in 1900 si in cele din urma s-a stabilit in regiunea Los Angeles  in 1906. Imediat dupa stabilire a inceput sa proiecteze si sa construiasca in Pasadena o casa mare in stilul renastentist italian care a devenit atelierul sau si pe care a terminat-o in 1908.

Bischoff a fost unul dintre primii membrii ai California Art Club, iar a doua intalnire a grupului s-a tinut la atelierul sau in 5 februarie  1910.

Inspirat de peisajele rurale din California, Bischoff  a incercat sa  captureze lumina stralucitoare din zona si peisaje  deosebite. A pictat ferme locale, pontoane de pescuit, peisaje de coasta si scene din Sierra Nevada si muntii Utah, inclusiv Zion National Park. Un critic comenta ca unele dintre ultimele lui lucrari cochetau cu expresionismul, iar felul in care folosea culorile amintea de fauvism. Franz Bischoff a murit de infarct acasa in orasul pe care l-a adoptat,  Pasadena, California in 5 februarie 1929.

Walter Elmer Schofield (9 septembrie 1867 – 1 martie 1944), pictor american.

Schofield s-a nascut in Philadelphia, tatal sau emigrand in SUA din Marea Britanie in anii ’40. Mama sa era stranepoata scriitoarei Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, autoarea celebrului „Frankenstein”.

Urmeaza cursurile Swarthmore College si apoi pe cele ale Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, inainte de a pleca la Paris, unde se inscrie la Academie Julian. Dar in scurt timp se simte sufocat de cursurile si tehnicile prea rigide si incepe sa lucreze in aer liber, in special in padurea Fontainbleau.

Din 1892 incepe o lunga perioada de calatorii si cautari, artistul stabilindu-se cu familia in 1901 in Southport, Anglia. Doi ani mai tarziu va parasi localitatea, stabilindu-se in colonia artistica St Ives de la Cornwall. Desi statea in Anglia, si-a pastrat cetatenia americana si petrecea in fiecare an destul de mult timp in Pennsylvania, regiune pe care o considera ideala ca inspiratie pentru scenele de iarna.

Locuieste in mai multe orase din Anglia, aflandu-se mereu in cautarea unor noi peisaje care sa merite transpuse pe panza. In timp ce urma cursurile Academiei intalneste un grup de artisti americani, intre care Robert HenriEdward RedfieldJohn Sloan, William GlackensEverett Shinn, membrii ai celebrului grup „The Eight”. Acest grup, format ca o reactie de impotrivire la normele rigide de la National Academy, expune prima data la Macbeth Galleries din New York, in februarie 1908, expozitie care a starnit atat entuziasmul, cat si furia criticii epocii.

S-a remarcat prin scenele de iarna, in stil impresionist, pictate in Anglia si Pennsylvania. Compozitiile sale sunt foarte detaliate si bogate cromatic, Schofield folosind mai ales tonurile de albastru.

Francis Luis Mora (27 iulie 1874 – 1940), pictor american, nascut in Uruguay.

S-a nascut in Montevideo, Uruguay. Francis Luis Mora a fost fiul sculptorului si pictorului spaniol Domingo Mora, care i-a fost si primul profesor, pentru ca ulterior tanarul artist sa se inscrie la Scoala de Arta a Muzeului Boston. Mora s-a impus in scurt timp atat ca ilustrator cat si datorita picturilor murale, in care imbina influente spaniole si americane. La varsta de doar 18 ani Mora colabora deja cu mai multe periodice importante, realizand grafica acestora. Doi ani mai tarziu are prima sa expozitie, iar in 1900 realizeaza o impresionanta pictura murala pentru Biblioteca Publica din Lynn. Compozitiile sale infatiseaza de regula scene linistite din viata cotidiana, interioare si peisaje marine. Mora a lucrat in ulei, acuarela, carbune si pastel, pictand intre altele portretul presedintelui Warren Harding, lucrare expusa si in prezent la Casa Alba. S-a bucurat de succes ca artist si profesor, tinand cursuri ASL, Grand Central School of Art si New York School of Art.

Arthur Wesley Dow (6 aprilie 1857 – 13 decembrie 1922) a fost un pictor, grafician, fotograf si influent profesor de arta american.

Dow a predat timp de  30 de ani la marile institutii de arta americane printre care Teachers College, Columbia University; Art Students League din New York; Pratt Institute; si la propria scoala Ipswich Summer School of Art.Ideile lui erau destul de revolutionare pentru acea perioada, mai degraba preda decat sa copieze natura, arta trebuie creata de elemente de compozitie, ca linie, masa si culoare. Ideile lui au fost publicate in cartea  de compozitie din 1899 : „O serie de exercitii in structura de arta pentru uzul studentilor si al profesorilor(A Series of Exercises in Art Structure for the Use of Students and Teachers)”. A predat multor artisti si artizani, ca Georgia O’Keeffe, Charles Sheeler, Charles J. Martin, doua dintre surorile Overbeck si la colonia Byrdcliffe.

Si-a inceput cariera pictand portrete ale familiilor distinse si picturi murale pentru Biblioteca  Congresului. De asemenea a realizat numeroase picturi in ulei, acuarele si schite de peisaje salbatice.

In 1880, Benson a inceput sa studieze la School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston sub indrumarea lui Otto Grundmann, iar in 1883 la Académie Julian din Paris. A fost membru fondator al grupului artistic Ten American Painters, al American Academy of Arts and Letters si al The Guild of Boston Artists.
Frank Weston Benson a fost fiul lui George Wiggin Benson, un broker de bumbac si al Elisabethei Poole, din familii care au fondat Salemul, Massachusetts.

Tatal lui Benson i-a dat fiului sau o pusca si l-a invatat sa impuste pasari salbatice de pe tarmul de nord, din campii si mlastini.El isi petrecea weekend-urile vanand sau pescuind in campii, mlastini si pe rauri.

Un avid observator al pasarilor si vanator de rate salbatice, Benson a dorit sa devina ilustrator ornitolog.Si-a inceput studiile la School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 1880, iar acolo s-a imprietenit cu Joseph Lindon Smith, Robert Reid si Edmund Charles Tarbell. Capitalizand ceea ce invatase, Benson  a dat ore de desen in Salem si a pictat peisaje in vara lui 1882.

La aniversarea a 21 de ani, Benson a primit de la parintii lui 2.000 $  pentru a studia in Europa.A calatorit la Paris si a studiat la Académie Julian din 1883 pana in 1884 impreuna cu Edmund Tarbell si Joseph Lindon Smith.La Academie, Benson a studiat sub indrumarea lui Jules Joseph Lefebvre, William Turner Dannat si Gustave Boulanger.
Benson a fost „profund influenat” de Jan Vermeer si Diego Velázquez, maestri din secolul al XVII-lea.

Joseph Rodefer DeCamp (5 noiembrie 1858 – 11 februarie 1923) a fost un  pictor american.

S-a nascut in Cincinnati, Ohio unde a studiat cu Frank Duveneck. In a doua jumatate a anilor 1870 a plecat cu Duveneck si colegii lui studenti la Royal Academy din München. A petrecut o perioada in Florenta, Italia si s-a  reintors la Boston in 1883.

DeCamp a devenit cunoscut ca membru al scolii din Boston condusa de Edmund Charles Tarbell si Emil Otto Grundmann, concentrata pe pictura de figuri, iar in anii 1890 a adoptat stilul Tonalism. A fost membru fondator al grupului Ten American Painters, un grup de impresionisti americani, in 1897.

Un incendiu in anul 1904 la studioul lui din Boston a distrus cateva sute dintre primele lui picturi, inclusiv aproape toate peisajele lui.

A murit in Boca Grande, Florida.
