Daniel Ridgeway Knight was born in Pennsylvania and studied and exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts with Mary Cassatt and Thomas Eakins before moving to Paris in 1861 to study at l'École des Beaux-Arts and settling there permanently in 1872.
A friend of Renoir, Sisley and Wordsworth as well as Meissonier, Millet, Jules Breton, and Bastien-Lepage, Knight developed a Barbizon-like style of painting featuring the rural classes during their happier moments. Daydreams is characteristic of Knight's affection for country folk caught in a moment of reverie on the banks of the Seine from which he earned great success and fame.
