Edward A. Page, 1850 - 1928, was born in Groveland, Massachusetts and educated in the public schools of Dorchester and South Boston. He studied art under George Morse and Frederic Porter Vinton. Page moved to Lynn, Massachusetts, in 1883 where he established himself as an artist and taught at the Lynn Evening Drawing School. By 1901 he had studios in Lynn and Boston. His work appeared often in exhibitions of the Lynn Art Club, the Boston Art Club, the Salmagundi Club of New York, and the Providence Art Club.
In The Lynn Beach Painters: Art Along the North Shore 1880-1920 (Lynn Historical Society), D. Roger Howlett describes a remarkable group of artists including Page, Nathaniel Leander Berry, William Partridge Burpee, Edward Burrill, Jr., Charles Edwin Lewis Green, Thomas Clarkson Oliver, and Charles Herbert Woodbury. Howlett’s book is the definitive text on the work of these artists at that time and place. The reader will be rewarded with an understanding of life at the turn of the century in North Shore communities – Revere, Lynn, Nahant, and Swampscott – and the commercial, cultural and artistic context for these artists.
