Ernest Parton was the younger brother of Arthur, in whose studio he spent two winters. However, he received no instruction in art from regular masters or in any schools. He was elected a member of the Artists' Fund Society of New York in 1873, contributing one work each year to its sales. In 1873, he traveled to Europe for the purposes of spending a few months mainly in Great Britain, but, meeting with success in London, he decided to remain, exhibiting at the Royal Academy and elsewhere.
In 1876 he visited the Swiss Lakes and Northern Italy, making many sketches. He returned to New York in 1884 through 1886. Among his most notable paintings are: Morning Mist, exhibited at the National Academy (NAD) in New York, and the following exhibited at the Royal Academy in London: Papa's Lunch, The Placid Stream, Sunny September, Poet's Corner, The Silent Pool, Reflections, and The Duck Pond.
