    After graduating from high school in 1907, Kerr Eby moved to New York City to study art at the Pratt Institute, and the Art Students League. He formed friendships with John Henry Twachtman and Childe Hassam, and joined a summer artists' colony founded by them at Cos Cob, Connecticut. Eby supported himself by working as a magazine illustrator and at the American Lithographic Company.

    Eby is also celebrated for war art he created, on location, during WW II, in a program sponsored by Abbott Laboratories. He landed with the invasion force in Tarawa and witnessed some of the fiercest fighting of the war.
    There are a few small stains and a paper surface-pull in the upper center in an area by the tree, near the man and boy riding a sled.
