Louis Aston Knight Biography
American Naturalist painter
Louis Aston Knight was the
son of the American ex-patriot painter,
Daniel Ridgway Knight. Daniel Ridgway Knight
was born in America and began studying art
at the Pennsylvania Academy of Art. In 1872,
Louis Aston Knight traveled to Paris and continued to study
at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. Thereafter,
he remained in Europe, and studied in the
academic studios of the Romantic Salon
painters, Jules Ernst Meissonier and Charles Gleyre and the Impressionists, Pierre
Auguste Renoir and Alfred Sisley. Although
Ridgway Knight, spent most of his life in
Europe, his American style and technique
show through. This typically American
approach towards painting was to influence
artist Louis Aston Knight as well.
|"A group of new landscapes by Louis Aston Knight, the popular painter of the Normandy Riverscape, is the Holiday attraction at the Levy Gallery. Mr. Knight sticks closely to his well established formula, doubtless due to the tremendous acclaim acquired in his earlier years when Hopkinson Smith publicized him as the "painter in the high rubber boots" for artist Louis Aston Knight was not content with studying the action of the Normandy streams from the comfortable banks.... used to do on a pair of waist-high rubber boots and setting up his easel in mid-stream, paint the purling waters at first hand."|
Aston Knight was a favorite of American
presidents in his day. In 1922, President
Harding purchased a Louis Aston Knight painting, to hang in the White House, and
President Coolidge held a private exhibition of Louis Aston Knight art during
Many of Louis Aston Knight paintings have had international acclaim and are housed in the art collections of the Luxembourg Museum, Muse des Colonies in Paris, in Nimes & Evreux France and in the Museum of Fine Art in Toledo, Ohio and the Delgado Museum in New Orleans.
