With a long-time career as an art teacher and Impressionist painter, Edward Dufner was one of the
first students of the Buffalo Art Students League to earn an Albright Scholarship to study painting
in New York.

In 1893, he moved to Manhattan and took classes at the Art Students League with Henry Siddons
Mowbray, figure painter and muralist. Five years later, Dufner and his wife went to Paris where
he studied at the Academies Julian and Carmen. His dark palette shows the influence of James
Whistler, with whom he allegedly studied, but the date is unknown.

He returned to the United States in 1903 and settled first in Buffalo and then in New York City.
He began painting in the Impressionist style and taught at the Art Students Leagues of both cities
and was a popular instructor. In 1910, he held a special Art Students League summer in Caldwell,
New Jersey, and he spent most of his subsequent summers painting there.
