Selected works by D. Jerome Elwell

D. Jerome Elwell

1847 - 1912

Jerome Elwell's tastes were always refined.... He was deeply interested in art from the first, but instruction was not within everyone's reach in those days ... whether he ever received any instruction from Mr. [Fitz Hugh] Lane, the writer is not aware. He admired his work, and once said of a marine by Mr. Lane, "He painted that sky con amore, didn't he?"
