Biography (courtesy Askart: The Artists' Bluebook): Cornoyer studied at the School of Fine Arts in St. Louis, Missouri in 1881. In 1889, he went to Paris for further training, studying at the Academie Julien, and returned to St. Louis in 1894. In 1894, he painted a mural depicting the birth of St. Louis for the Planters Hotel in that city. In 1899, Cornoyer traveled to New York City, upon the encouragement of William Merritt Chase. In New York, Cornoyer became a specialist in Tonal urban scenes, especially after rain with its blurred effects, his masterwork being The Plaza after Rain, purchased in 1910 by the new art museum of St. Louis. In addition, Cornoyer taught at the Mechanics Institute in New York, and later was an instructor in Massachusetts, moving there in 1917. He painted and exhibited his works up until his death in 1923.
