Bruce Crane, born in New York City in 1857, is a notable American Impressionist landscape painter. He first studied with Alexander Wyant (1832 – 1892) and then at the Art Students League in New York. After spending time in France, where he was strongly influenced by the Barbizon school, he returned to the U.S., and was soon after recognized with the prestigious Webb Prize for landscape painting. He painted throughout the east, including the Adirondacks, New Jersey, East Hampton and Long Island, and maintained a studio in Old Lyme, Connecticut for many years, before settling in Bronxville, New York.
Crane’s work resides in the collections of numerous notable institutions, including: the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York; the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia; the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington D.C., and many others.
