Artist Biography

Jonas Lie (1880-1940) was born in Moss, Norway, he was the son of a distinguished Norwegian engineer. His mother was an American and, after his father’s death in 1892, Lie was sent to live with an uncle in Paris. Guests of that Parisian household included such famous Norwegians as Edvard Grieg and Henrik Ibsen. In 1893 Lie came to the United States to join his mother and sister in New York City, where he enrolled for evening classes at the Cooper Union, the National Academy of Design and the Art Students League. He was closely associated at this time with The Eight, an influential group of talented young artists, including John Sloan, Robert Henri, William Glackens, George Luks and others, who were attempting to restore straightforward realism to American art. Lie embraced their ideology and created works of stark powerful simplicity. In 1919, he helped organize the New Society of Artists in protest against the National Academy’s refusal to admit members of The Eight. Many of the Lies' summers were spent on the coast ofNew England or Canada; for years he was a prolific exhibitor of intensely coloured, scenic views of rocky coves and harbours, landscapes characterized by a facile, broad handling of pigment. In 1913, the artist worked for several months on the site of the Panama Canal, recording the last days of its construction. ‘The Conquerors, Panama Canal’ (1913, Metropolitan Museum of Art) is an example from that much acclaimed series. In addition to his creative interests, Lie was active in New York City’s art community as an administrator. Early in his career, he assisted with the organisation of the famed Armoury show of 1913. Before his death in 1940, he was president of the National Academy of Design from 1935 to 1939.
