Tarbell, Edmund

Tarbell, Edmund (Charles)

(1862–1938) painter; born in West Croton, Mass. He was based in Boston, studied at the Boston Museum School (1879), where he later taught (1889–1913), and in France (1883–88). He was a member of the Ten (1898), largely an impressionist group, and his paintings, such as In the Orchard (1891), have recently been reevaluated and praised.
