In a style of impressionism inspired by Van Gogh, American artist Hayley Lever (1876-1958) employed a crisp and modernist—sometimes almost Fauvist—color palette and a staccato gesture in his brushwork. He began his studies at the Academie Julian in Paris and moved to America once he gained recognition for his scenes of marine and coastal life. From 1919 to 1931 Lever taught at the Art Students League New York City. He was awarded several medals for his work, including silver and gold medals from the National Academy.
