Catalogue Note

Tyson was an artist of many talents.  Known for his colorful coastal landscapes and portraits in the impressionist style, he is equally renowned for his remarkably life-like watercolors and prints of the wild birds of Desert Island, Maine where he spent his summers.  He was a lifelong resident of Philadelphia and studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (PAFA) under William Merritt Chase, Thomas Eakins and Cecilia Beaux.  He furthered his art studies in Munich with Carl von Marr and Walter Thor.  Tyson was also an avid collector of art and through a landmark exhibition he helped to organize at the PAFA in 1920, he played a key role in introducing the American public to the work of Cezanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Picasso and Matisse.
