Biography

Parker was born in New York City. He received his education at New York University, and was a merchant from 1850 until 1857.

Mountain scenery especially claimed his attention, and the Adirondacks, the Catskills, and the White Mountains furnished him with most of the subjects for his paintings, which include:

“Twilight in the Adirondacks” (1876)
“Winter” (1879)
“Winter Twilight” (1880)
“Landscape in the Adirondacks — Twilight” (1882)
