Gustave Cimiotti relinquished a potential career as a concert pianist when he decided to enroll in the Art Students League in 1895. There, he demonstrated an amazing talent for figure drawing, but he was lured into the outdoors for subject matter with studies at the Academie Julian in 1899 and a tour of Italy, Switzerland, and the Low-Countries. When he returned to America in the summer of 1900, he was habitually sketching en plein air. At his first solo show at the Bauer-Folsom Galleries in December 1908, critics admired the structured simplicity of his style and the high-keyed palette that he discovered while in France, referring to it as a “certain refreshing brightness” (1).

 

Cimiotti taught at the Berkshire Summer School of Art, the Montclair Museum School, the old Whitney Museum School, the Newark School of Fine and Industrial Arts, and the Pratt Institute. He taught, painted, and exhibited into his nineties until his death in 1969.
