Wilson Henry Irvine received his initial art instruction from the Art Institute of Chicago. Although he settled in Connecticut, he traveled extensively through the United States and Western Europe to paint a variety of impressionistic landscapes. Irvine is closely associated with the artist colony in Old Lyme, Connecticut, which attracted many early impressionist painters in America.
