William Merritt Post (American, 1856-1935) first studied art in New York with Samuel Frost Johnson, a relatively unknown artist.  He then moved on to study at the Art Students League and then with the landscape painter, Hugh Bolton Jones.  By the 1880’s he was very influenced by impressionism.  He became a tonalist known for his landscapes often centering on country streams in autumn.
