WILLIAM MARK FISHER PAINTINGS FOR SALE & BIOGRAPHY
WILLIAM MARK FISHER
Described in 1893 by George Moore as "our greatest living landscape painter," Fisher was born in Boston and studied there at the Lowell Institute under George Inness. He traveled to Paris in 1861 and studied with Gleyre and was influenced by the landscapes of Corot. In 1872, Fisher moved to England and began exhibiting regularly at the Royal Academy and the New England Art Club. The artist was awarded a bronze medal at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1889. He began as a genre and portrait painter but spent most of his career painting landscapes.
Fisher was elected a full Royal Academician in 1919 and his 1920 diploma work An Orchard in Spring is in the collection of the Royal Academy. Among the numerous other museum collections that include paintings by Fisher are Tate Britain, the Manchester City Art Gallery, the Waker Art Gallery, Liverpool, the National Museum of Wales, Cardiff, and the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia.
