- A leader of the Woodstock Art Colony, John Fabian Carlson was celebrated “for the harmonious color schemes of his tonalist landscapes and his delicate glazing technique to create the subtle atmosphere of a tranquil inner forest under snow.” Born in Sweden, the artist emigrated to Buffalo, New York in 1883. He first trained under John Mayer in Buffalo, then with Lucius Hitchcock at the Albright Art Gallery in Buffalo. He subsequently enrolled in the Art Students League where he was instructed by Birge Harrison and Frank Vincent DuMond.
