Born in New York City, Robert Bruce Crane (1857-1937) embraced two artistic movement of the late 19th century the Barbizon school and tonalism. Crane studied in Paris in the late 1870s and on his return to America, began painting landscapes "en plein air" in the Barbizon style which emphasized landscapes expressing the emotional experience of the artist. After joining the Old Lyme colony of painters in Connecticut in 1904, he began to turn to tonalism, using beige, russet and brown tones to achieve an autumnal effect in his paintings as he does here in "Early Morning".
