Sanford Robinson Gifford (July 10, 1823 – August 29, 1880) was an American landscape painter and one of the leading members of the Hudson River School. Gifford's landscapes are known for their emphasis on light and soft atmospheric effects, and he is regarded as a practitioner of Luminism, an offshoot style of the Hudson River School. WIKI

He apparently never married.

A visitor to his studio one day saw on the floor an unfinished study of an autumn landscape Having asked the price of it, he was told that the work was not worth selling -- that it was merely a fragment. Still urged to sell it, the visitor being a well-known connoisseur who prized the canvas for what it was, and not for what it was not, the artist named a small sum, recieved the money, and promised to forward the painting. When the latter arrived, it was found that several hours' labor had been expended upon making it worthier of its author. To the surprise, however, of the buyer, nothing further was said about the price, although the market value was perhaps three times greater than when the sale took place. Gifford was careful of his fame in that way. [The Art Journal (1875-1887) Vol. 6 http://www.jstor.org/stable/20569593 ] wiki: Wiki
