Biography:

Born in Brooklyn, NY in October 25, 1876, F. Edwin Church attended Columbia School of Architecture. He later studied under John Twachtman, Frank Dumond, and at the Académie Julian in Paris with J.P. Laurens (1905).

Church traveled through Europe studying the Masters and making art. He returned to New York and continued to paint throughout his life.

He was a member of the Salmagundi Club, Lyme Art Association, Allied Artists of America, New York Architectural League and others. Church was awarded the Clark Prize, National Academy of Design, 1916. He exhibited at the National Academy of Design, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Detroit Art Institute, Salons of America, and the Society of Independent Artists.
