Blashfield and Tradition

Edwin H. Blashfield, Spring Scattering Stars

Mural painter Edwin Howland Blashfield (1848-1936) defined tradition this way:

"Tradition is the tribute which the genuine artist pays to the wisdom of the finer souls in the art of all ages.” 

Blashfield studied at the Pennsylvania Academy, MIT, and in Paris with Bonnat. Read more in his classic book Mural painting in America.
