Biography from Crocker Art Museum Store:
Painter, muralist, etcher. Born in Grass Valley, CA on Sept. 15, 1857. The Stantons moved to San Francisco when John was quite young and lived on a ranch in the Mission District. After graduating from St Ignatius High School, he enrolled at the local School of Design and in 1888 furthered his art studies in Paris under Laurens and De Chavannes. After four years abroad, he returned to San Francisco and became chief administrator of the Midwinter Fair in 1894. His studio in the 600 block of Clay Street was presided over by an American Indian valet who dressed in tribal attire. Stanton taught at the School of Design for 26 years. In 1904 he and his family moved down the peninsula to Palo Alto and resided at 409 Melville Avenue. He made monotypes on a printing press which he purchased from the Palo Alto Times. His early portraits, marines, Indian subjects, and landscapes were depicted in a realistic, pictorial style; whereas, after the turn of the century his palette brightened and his works were freer and more akin to Impressionism. Stanton died in Palo Alto on Aug. 25, 1929. After his death an ignorant relative trashed most of his paintings, making any extant paintings rare. Exh: Calif. State Fair, 1882-1901 (gold medals); Mechanics' Inst. (SF), 1885-97; Paris Salon, 1891; SFAA, 1896-1916; Bohemian Club from 1897; Courvoisier Gallery (SF), 1921. In: St Ignatius Church, Palo Alto (murals); Bohemian Club; De Young Museum. AAA 1903, 1917; Palo Alto Times, 7-7-1922; AAW; Oakland Museum; Ber; DR.
