Didactic Information A painter, teacher, etcher, illustrator, and author, Peirce was known for his unique approaches to the atmosphere and land. The artist first graduated from the Cleveland, Ohio School of Art and then attended the Art Students League in New York, but established himself in the Tucson area.
