Known principally as a marine artist and student of Edward Moran (1829–1901), Franklin Briscoe also studied in England and France. While there, he would have been aware of the work of plein-air artists who were associated with the Barbizon movement, which implemented the technique of painting outdoors, from life, and profoundly influenced his later landscapes.
