T.C. Steel, was born in 1847 in Indiana but traveled throughout the U.S. and Europe much of his life, studying in Chicago and Germany. He established himself as a portrait painter, but after the death of his wife, he turned to landscapes as she had always encouraged him to paint them. He made his home in Indiana in 1907 to paint the scenic landscapes of the state. As a major painter of the time, his move caused many artists to follow him and thus establishing the Art Colony of the Midwest. His work appeared in exhibitions all over the nation as well as in several South American countries and live today in many art museums. Though he was arguably the most famous of the “Hoosier Group,” a group of American Impressionists, he also devoted his time to public lectures, writings and serving on art juries. He died in Indiana in 1926.
