Louis Aston Knight, 1873–1948, was a French-born American artist noted for art of landscapes. His Oil painting, The Afterglow, was purchased by U.S. President Warren G. Harding in 1922 to hang in the White House. He was promoted to officer of the Légion d'honneur in 1927. The favorite subjects of Louis Aston Knight paintings were the cottages and gardens in the towns. He was noted for his ability to render "the transparency, the reflections and the movements of water." His auction record was $108,000, for A Cottage Along the River, in 2005. -- The Copyright of Scripts is Reserved by Toperfect.
