Maurice Brazil Prendergast


Maurice Brazil Prendergast (1858-1924) was an American Post-Impressionist painter known for his vibrant and colorful depictions of leisurely scenes set on beaches and in parks.

Born in St. John's, Newfoundland, Prendergast studied in Paris and was influenced by the works of Édouard Vuillard, Pierre Bonnard, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

He was a member of the group known as "The Eight" and was known for his bold and flat color palette, as well as his use of pattern-like forms.

Prendergast's work is characterized by its use of bright, unmodulated colors and its ability to capture the beauty of everyday life.
