  Louis Aston Knight was the son of internationally famed American artist Daniel Ridgeway Knight. He was born in Paris on August 3, 1873, and died in New York City, May 8,1948.
  Starting in 1892, Aston Knight attended Academie Julian for several years, where he studied classical figure painting under Jules Lefebvre and Tony Robert-Fleury. Early on he and his Father realized that there should be a basic distinction between their respective artwork. They reached an informal understanding: Ridgeway Knight always introduced one or more figures in his landscapes, whereas Aston Knight never placed figures in his scenes.
  Aston Knight was a regular exhibitor at the Paris Salons and was a member of the French and American Art Society. He also was a member of the Rochester Art Club in Rochester New York.
