8″x10″ photo print
Triscott was born in England and studied watercolor with Philip Mitchell and at the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colors in London. He settled in Boston in the 1870s and began a successful career painting watercolors. He went to Monhegan for the first time in 1892 with Sears Gallagher at the suggestion of either William Claus or Frank Myrick, Boston artists who visited Monhegan in the 1880s. Triscott bought a house on the island in 1893, shortly before he got his citizenship in 1894, summering on the island and wintering in Boston. Then, in 1902, he gave up his residence in Boston and Monhegan became his permanent home. He lived there until he died in 1925, seldom leaving the island. Triscott was the first artist to have Monhegan as a long-term primary residence. Among Triscott’s students were his friend, Sears Gallagher, Charles Copeland and Robert Henri. He exhibited at the Boston Art Club, in New York with the American Watercolor Society, at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and at the Art Institute of Chicago.
