This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Bruce Handiside Mitchell
Born in Scotland 1908, died 1963 in Langhorne, Pennsylvania.

Bruce Handiside Mitchell was born in Tayport, Scotland in 1908. A student of jazz himself, he used the music and musicians of jazz as inspiration for his artwork. He frequently painted musicians as they performed live, resulting in works with vivid, animated strokes.

Mitchell worked as an artist war correspondent for LIFE magazine during World War II; however, most of his life was devoted to teaching. He was known to have taught at Bucknell University, and some of his papers reside at Susquehanna University. He also painted murals for the U.S. postal service in the 1930's including Columbia Bridge, Brownsville Pennsylvania

In addition to Pennsylvania, he was known to have painted in Keene, New Hampshire, the Adirondack Mountains and on Block Island.

His paintings hang in the permanent collections of Metropolitan Museum and Whitney Museum in New York City; Duncan-Philips Memorial and Library of Congress in Washington DC; William Rockhill-Nelson Museum in Kansas City; Isaac Delgado Museum in New Orleans; and University of Arizona Museum, Tucson; and Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.

He is the only artist to ever be awarded all three of the Tiffany, Yaddo and Guggenheim Fellowships.
