Edward Gay’s family emigrated from Ireland to Albany, New York in 1848. He later studied with local
painter James Hart (1828-1901), and became part of group of young Albany artists that included
encouragement from the German-trained Hart, he spent 1862-1864 training in Karlsruhe. Gay
purchased a home for his family in Mount Vernon, New York in 1870, and one for summers in
Cragsmoor, New York after 1905. Many of his artworks feature verdant landscape vistas of these areas
in his characteristically broad and truthful style. He also painted abroad in the countries of England,
France, Norway, and Egypt.
Gay first exhibited at the National Academy of Design in 1867 and was elected an Associate two years
later. It was not until nearly four decades later that he achieved the status of full Academician. In
addition to the National Academy of Design, he exhibited at the Brooklyn Art Association,
Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Art Institute of Chicago, and Corcoran Gallery, among others.
