David Baxter

David Baxter trained four years at Ingbretson Studio of Drawing & Painting, in Manchester, New Hampshire, an Art Renewal Center (ARC) Approved Atelier, in the Great Masters Program under the tutelage of Paul Ingbretson.

The Great Masters Program provides a direct link to the Nineteenth Century Boston School approach to painting, which sought to combine truth and beauty featuring:
Direct Painting
Academic Draughtsmanship
Impressionist Color
Sound Composition
Painterly Craft

The leading exponents of the “Boston School” included Edmund Tarbell, Frank Benson, William Paxton, Joseph DeCamp, Philip Hale and Leslie Thompson. R.H. Ives Gammell (with whom Ingbretson studied) was a turn-of-the-century Boston Museum School pupil of Tarbell, Benson and Paxton, and later consulted extensively with Paxton, who was himself a product of the French Beaux Arts Training.

Baxter is grateful to have trained in the “Boston School” tradition and humbled to be a part of this lineage of painting, which traces from Baxter to his teacher Ingbretson, to his teacher Gammell, to his teach Paxton, to his teacher Gerome and so on, all the way back to Leonardo DaVinci.

After completing his training, Baxter lived in Nashville, Tennessee, painting commissions for clients in various parts of the country. He currently lives and works from his northern-lit studio in Hernando, Mississippi.
