Cape Cod artist Caleb Slade was born in Acushnet, Massachusetts, attended public schools in New Bedford, and went on to Brown University. After graduating in 1904, he began a career in business, and then turned to painting, studying at the Art Students League, and then in Paris. He remained in France during WWI, painting images of the war, many of which appeared in Scribner's and the New York Times. He also painted in Algeria and Tunisia. In the 1920's he settled in Truro on the outer cape, and from then on focused on local landscapes. In 2001 an exhibition of his work was held at the Cape Museum of Fine Arts and the Attleboro Museum.
