Theodore Earl Butler

Theodore Earl Butler, (1861–1936) was an American impressionist painter. He was born in Columbus, Ohio, and moved to Paris to psychiatry art. He befriended Claude Monet in Giverny, and married his stepdaughter, Suzanne Hoschedé. After her death he married her sister, Marthe Hoschedé. Butler was a founding aficionado of the Society of Independent Artists.

Butler's agreed subjects were domestic scenes of relatives and connections and the French landscape. Although his Impressionistic right of entry to painting sometimes reflected the upset of his father-in-law, his exploit also suggests Post-Impressionist tendencies.
