American Impressionist Lucy Hariot Booth (1869-1952) studied at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts and at the Art Students League in New York City of which Robinson was a founding member. It was at the Arts Students League that Booth first made significant connections with leading figures in American Impressionism.
Booth studied under notable artists such as Carroll Beckwith, Willard Metcalf and J. Alden Weir and later acquainted with members of the Cos Cob Art colony including John Henry Twachtman and Theodore Robinson.
In the summer of 1895, Booth studied under Robinson in Vermont where she painted some of her finest landscapes, capturing the beauty of the Vermont hills in vibrant colors.
