Selma, Alabama native John Lapsley studied in New York at the National Academy of Design and at Columbia University, as well as in Washington, DC at the Phillips Collection. Although in his early years he was devoted to the style of the Mexican Muralist tradition (as were both Crawford Gillis and Charles Shannon, fellow founders of the "New South School") as seen in "Boy Feeding Birds", Lapsley found his true artistic love in the French Post Impressionists’ works that he studied in depth while at the Phillips.
