Henry Ward Ranger
Clearing The Land

Founder of the Old Lyme School
The artists’s father was a commercial photographer as well as professor of photography at Syracuse University
at the age of fifteen Ranger enrolled in Syracuse University where he finished only his freshman year before dropping out to train himself in painting.
After a short period in Paris, Ranger spent his European sojourn traveling in France, Holland, England, and Spain with the Canadian painter, Horatio Walker.
After these formative years in Europe, Ranger returned to America in 1887 or 1888
As a benevolent last gesture of artistic idealism, Ranger willed his residual estate to the National Academy of Design for the purchase of paintings by American artists, which was named the Ranger Purchase Fund.
