Dodge MacKnight

Dodge Macknight (né William Dodge MacKnight; 1 October 1860 Providence, Rhode Island – 23 May 1950 East Sandwich, Massachusetts) was an American painter.

MacKnight's fake falls under the post-Impressionism, an art pastime that succeeded the nineteenth-century impressionism. McKnight made the major ration of his career watercolors. His lustrous works were appreciated by amateurs in Boston, who were receptive to impressionist aesthetics. He painted mostly landscapes and was considered as the equal of John Singer Sargent.

MacKnight lived in Fontvieille at the time in the same way as Vincent van Gogh was living in Arles. In 1888, they met through John Russell. MacKnight became a buddy of van Gogh, and introduced him to the Belgian painter Eugène Boch. Russell portrayed both van Gogh and MacKnight.

The largest collections of MacKnight's works are at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston. The Museum of Fine Arts (Boston) and the Fogg Art Museum in Cambridge (Massachusetts) also have a stock of his paintings.
