Kerr Eby
American, 1889 - 1946
Biography: Kerr Eby was born in Tokyo, Japan, where his father was a Canadian missionary. His childhood was spent in Canada, but in 1907, at the age of eighteen, Eby moved to New York City to study art at the Pratt Art Institute. He spent summers from 1913 to 1917 at the Cos Cob artist's colony. He is probably best known for his etchings of World War I and World War II. Following World War I, he settled in Westport, Connecticut and produced many etchings of Connecticut landscapes. He died in Norwalk, in 1946.
