Raised in St. Louis, Gustave Wolff studied with Paul Cornoyer, F. Humphrey Woolrych, and Frederick Sylvester, and then in the Netherlands. He became one of the leading artists of St. Louis. He exhibited at the Paris Salon, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Pennsylvania Academy. Wolff moved to New York City and painted bucolic scenes of the parks and environs of the quieter parts of the city, as well as fine impressionist industrial views. A choice example.
