Louis Kronberg

Bostonian Louis Kronberg studied art at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the Art Students League in New York. He spent much of his career in France, purchasing art for Isabella Stewart Gardner of the Gardner Museum in Boston.

Upon returning to the States, he became a prominent artist in Cape Ann, Massachusetts. One can’t help but surmise that Kronberg visited the exhibits of Frenchman Edgar Degas. This pastel draws direct comparisons to Degas’ Ballet series in both style and subject matter.
