Arthur Hoeber was born in Nutley, New Jersey. Having a natural aptitude for sketching and as a water colorist, he took evening classes in art at Cooper Union, then with James Carrolll Beckwith at the Art Students League in New York City. In 1851 he obtained a letter of introduction to British painter Sir John Millais, a well-known landscape painter and founder of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Millais encouraged him to go to France where he attended the Ecoles des Beaux Arts in Paris and studied under Jean Leon Gerome, the celebrated historical painter. During his tenure in France, he studied privately under French Academic painter Gustave Courtois. His artistic skills were highly regarded in Paris so much so that he was juried into the 1882 Paris Salon, where he continued to exhibit until 1885. He returned to New York City and concentrated on painting tidal wetlands in Cape Cod, New Jersey and Long Island. His style can be characterized as “Tonalist”, a style that was derived from the French Barbizon Style in which the colors and composition are designed to create mood and atmosphere. Hoeber titled his paintings using the location, season or time of day where it was painted.
