William Bliss Baker (November 27, 1859[n 2] – November 20, 1886)[1][3] was an award-winning American artist born in New York City[2] who began his studies and career just as the Hudson River school was winding down.[4] Baker began his studies in 1876 at the National Academy of Design, where he studied with well-established artists such as Bierstadt and de Haas.[2][5] Baker maintained studios in Clifton Park, New York and New York City, and his paintings were created using oils and watercolors, including several works done in black and white.[6]

Baker was just beginning to hit his stride as a landscape painter[7] when he died at his father's house at Hoosick Falls, New York at the age of 26[n 3] The New York Times stated that his death "deprived America of one of its most promising artists."[7]

Baker completed over 130 paintings in his career.
