Thomas B. Griffin was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania during the last half of the nineteenth century. His first formal art education was at the National Academy of Design in New York. While at the Academy, Griffin exhibited his very well executed impressionistic landscapes. In 1896, he listed his address as 340 Fulton Street, Brooklyn, New York. It was during this year that Griffin exhibited "Views from the Catskills (from Haine's Corners)" and "Hunter Mountain, Catskills," at the National Academy. Thomas B. Griffin later moved to Baltimore where he opened a studio and established himself as a painter of impressionistic landscapes.
