William Lamb Picknell

A generic image

William Lamb Picknell (1853 - 1897) is An American Emersonian Artist.  He was one of the most honored and respected artists in the United States. At the age of only twenty-six he was the first American to win an honorable mention for a landscape at the Paris Salon. The dealers Goupil and Avery vied for his paintings, and he exhibited regularly at the National Academy of Design and the Society of American Artists in New York; the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts; the Royal Academy and Society of British Artists in England; and the French Salon. Queen Victoria admired his Wintry March (Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool) and his Route de Concarneau was so well-known among art devotees that it appeared in a cartoon about the struggle for control of the Pennsylvania Academy. By the time of Picknell's death at the age of forty-three, his works were in about a dozen museums, and his many awards had been capped by a medal at the Paris Salon. But Picknell's life and work, encapsulated in the second half of the nineteenth century, was quickly forgotten after his early death. When the tide of twentieth-century modern art swept away interest in the older traditional styles, Picknell became only a vaguely remembered footnote.
