Fall river evening drawing school


Robert Spear Dunning and John Grouard founded the Fall River Evening Drawing School in 1870 in Fall River, Maine, a milling town. The school lasted into the early 1900s, and the curriculum focus was on highly realistic, "trompe l'oeil" still-life painting. It is said that no other community in the 19th century was so much known for still life painting. Students included Albert Monroe, Abbie Zuill, and Bryant Chaping.
