A native of New Jersey, Everett Shinn took night classes at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts while employed as an artist-reporter at various Philadelphia newspapers. In 1897 he moved to New York to work for Joseph Pulitzer’s "New York World." Most acclaimed for his large-scale pastels that used atmospheric conditions—such as snow in this example—to create artful effects, Shinn developed a form of the urban picturesque that fused quiet moments with theatrical action.
