William Kaula

(1871-1953)

William Kaula was best known for his New England landscapes. He studied first at the Massachusetts Normal Art School and then at Cowles Art School in Boston and Academie Julian in Paris. He lived and worked in Fenway Studios from 1905-35. Kaula was a student of Edmund Tarbell, who remained a major influence on the artist throughout his life career. His work often includes cloud filled skies with broad New Hampshire hills. Kaula had his first one man show at the prestigious Copley Gallery in Boston. He went on to become the president of the Boston Society of Watercolor Painters, although he also worked in oils and pastels. Kaula died at the age of 82.
