eterni bambini
a rincorrersi per Amore
e afferrarsi felici
tra le spighe d'oro
e il vento blu tra i capelli...

William McGregor Paxton (1869-1941) was an American impressionist painter. Born in Baltimore, he moved to Boston in the 70s with his family, where he won a scholarship for the Cowles Art School.
During his education, after meeting Dennis Bunker at home, he studied with Jean-Léon Gérôme at Paris and with Joseph DeCamp in Cowles, near Boston, where he also met his future wife Elizabeth Okie.

Paxton, known for his portraiture, taught at the Museum School from 1906 to 1913, together with Edmund Tarbell and Frank Benson, with whom he established the so-called Boston school. He died of a heart attack while making a portrait of his wife.
