Details:

Catalogue Note: Arthur Hoeber, a prolific writer, illustrator and landscape painter, was born in New York City. From boyhood, he displayed a particular talent for drawing and sketching, and continually practiced in water colors. One of his pictures was accepted by the American Water Color Society when he was only fourteen years old. Hoeber studied in the night schools of Cooper Union and then entered the Art Students League, where he studied under James Carroll Beckwith.
In 1881, Hoeber set off for Europe with letters of introduction from the noted actor Lew Wallack to his brother-in-law Sir John Everett Millais. Millais recommended that Hoeber study at the Ecole des Beaux Arts under Jean-Leon Gerome and then with Gustave Courtois. During his six years there he became an active member of the colony of American artists in residence. Like them he summered in Normandy and Concarneau, Brittany. He made his debut at the Paris Salon in 1883, and showed again two years later.
Upon his return to the states Hoeber was a regular exhibitor at the National Academy of Design (he later became an Associate Member), received a prize at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo in 1901. He held memberships in the Salmagundi Club, the Players and Lotos Clubs. He spent numerous summers on Cape Cod and Long Island where he showed a particular interest in sunsets and marshlands.
The turn of the century saw Hoeber settled in Nutley, New Jersey. He became the most prominent landscapist of a growing community of artists there. During this period Hoeber wrote rather prolifically on the arts and was the art critic for the New York Times. He made regular contributions to the New York Globe, Harper's Weekly and various other leading monthly magazines as well.
