Reuben LeGrande Johnston (1850 – 1915) Grazing Sheep

Oil on canvas, 8 x 10.5 inches / Signed lower left

Reuben LeGrande Johnston was born in Alexandria, Virginia and was a member of Washington Society and world traveler. He was self-taught, but is known to have studied art with Adalbert Volck in Baltimore, Maryland. Although Johnston is best known for his landscapes with animals, he painted portraits and genre scenes. He was well-traveled, visiting France, Spain, England, Tangiers and Morocco, the latter where some of his works were executed. He also traveled to the American west where he painted, notably Cheyenne, Wyoming. He was a member of the Society of Washington Artists (DC), where he exhibited, in addition to the National Academy of Design.
