Ernest Lawson (March 22, 1873 – December 18, 1939) was a Canadian-American painter and a member of The Eight. Lawson was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Though Lawson mostly painted landscapes, he also did some realistic urban scenes which were shown at the 1908 exhibition of The Eight. His painting style is heavily influenced by Impressionism, especially the style of John Henry Twachtman, Alfred Sisley, and J. Alden Weir. He died in Miami Beach, Florida in 1939.
