Theodore Earl Butler


Theodore Earl Butler


Also known as Butler, Theodore; Butler, Theodore E.

Nationality: American

Claude Monet and the artists' colony at Giverny helped transform Ohio native Theodore Butler into a premiere Post-Impressionist painter. He studied at the Art Students League in New York and at the Académies Julian and Colarossi in Paris before traveling to Giverny in 1888. At Giverny, Butler crafted his own style, combining Impressionist color and brushwork with Post-Impressionist abstracted, flattened forms and an emphasis on patterning. Butler married Monet’s step-daughter Suzanne Hoschedé and, after her death, her sister, Marthe Hoschedé. By the 1910s, Butler was producing landscapes with more vivid Fauve-like color. During this later period, he also particiated in the 1913 Armory Show in Chicago and helped organize the Society of Independent Artists with John Sloan. Today his works can be seen at the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh; El Paso Museum of Art; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Oklahoma City Museum of Art; Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia; and Phoenix Art Museum.
