Louis Aston Knight Biography

(b Paris, 1873; d New York City, 1948) American painter. Louis Aston Knight, son of the widely celebrated painter Daniel Ridgway Knight, painted, much like his father, both in France as well as in the United States. There is, at first, a similarity between Louis Aston and Daniel Ridgway's paintings, particularly in their subject matter of the French peasant and their handling of the French countryside. It is also true that the son and the father went on outings together for en-plein-air painting. On occasion Louis Aston also painted the flowers in his father's paintings, yet there was a gentleman's agreement between father and son that the former would concentrate on figure painting and the latter would concentrate on landscapes. In fact, Louis Aston soon found his favorite subjects in the 'rushing, crystal clear streams of Normandy’, as well as in the movement, flow and reflections of water everywhere - in mountain torrents, alongside a ship at sea, or merely in the glistening rain puddles of a city square. It is, therefore, no surprise that some critics should have acclaimed him as unexcelled in his treatment of water in all its moods.
