    Peter Camfferman (1890-1957), along with his wife, Margaret Gove Camfferman were among the earliest Modernist painters active in the Northwest. They were both members of Seattle’s progressive “Group of Twelve”. Camfferman was born in the Hague, Netherlands and emigrated to the US around 1902. He attended the Minneapolis School of Arts and married fellow art student Margaret Gove in 1914. In Minneapolis, he studied under Robert Kochler and Gustave von Schlegell.

    The Camfferman’s arrived at Whidbey Island, Washington in 1915 and built their own home, a main studio and eight hand-crafted studio cabins for visiting artists. They called their home Brackenwood and Peter built most of the furniture in the house and cabins from driftwood that they collected on the shore.

    Peter Camfferman studied with Stanton MacDonald Wright around 1920 and was influenced by the movement known as “Synchromism” which Wright co-founded with Morgan Russell. Extant paintings by Camfferman in this manner, date as early as 1920 making his experimentations in abstraction earlier than most northwest artists. During the 1920’s and 30’s, the Camfferman’s traveled extensively throughout the US, Mexico and Europe to study and paint. In 1932, Peter studied in Paris with the Cubist painter Andre L’hote who had a profound influence on his work.

    Peter’s exhibition history includes the Society of Independent Artists, Modern American Watercolors, the Newark Museum, Art Institute of Chicago, Los Angeles County Art Museum, Museum of Modern Art, New York, Oakland Art Gallery, the New York Municipal Exhibition at Rockefeller Center, Mills College, and numerous others. There is a representative selection of his work at the Seattle Art Museum where he had solo exhibitions in 1933, 1938 and 1956.
