Love Galleries): Born in Canada, Horatio Walker was artistically trained in England and France before becoming an active member of the Rochester Art Club, serving as its secretary and, later, its president. He was known for his genre paintings of cattle in the Barbizon School tradition. Walker exhibited regularly at the Boston Art Club, the Art Institute of Chicago, and others. He was awarded medals at the Paris Universal Exposition of 1889, the World's Columbian Exposition in 1893, the Pan-American Exposition in 1901, the St. Louis Universal Exposition in 1904, and the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco in 1915.
