Born in Spencer, Massachusetts, Joseph Greenwood showed an early interest in art but was given little encouragement by his parents. He left home as a teenager to work as a factory worker, while pursuing painting in his spare time. Impressed with Greenwood’s dedication, the owners of the mill sponsored him on a trip to Boston, where he was able to take private art lessons. However, his finances soon dwindled, and Greenwood was forced to return to his job at the mill.

From there, Greenwood moved to Worcester, where he continued painting while working as an art instructor. Greenwood focused his work on pastoral landscape paintings, focusing his work on the area around Worcester. Greenwood’s style combined the hazy atmosphere of the Tonalists with the bright light and loose brushwork of the Impressionists, as can be seen in “Autumn Pastures,” which depicts a field in autumn as the grasses turn gold and red.

Greenwood was a member of the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts and The Bohemian Club. He exhibited at the Boston Art Club, the Chicago 1893 Columbian Exhibition, and the National Academy of Design. The Worcester Art Museum, Clark University and Colby College all have a number of Green’s paintings in their permanent collection.
