Early in his career American painter Eugene Speicher was associated with modern American realism, but he created his portraits, still lifes, and nudes in a traditional academic style. This led to his being on the conservative side of the debate between classicists and modernists that eventually broke out in Woodstock and New York City. Speicher painted many landscapes, harbors, farms, and flowers. His work is built solidly on the past, in which he took methods from, and added his own flavor and personality.
Speicher studied at the Art Students League in New York City where he soon gained a reputation for portraiture. He shared a teacher and mentor in Robert Henri with Edward Hopper, and both artists revered Henri and cited him as a major influence on their approach to subject matter.
