Biography from Kravetz Auctions:
Edward Prentiss Knox (1880-1947)
Edward (Ned) Knox was known as "New Jersey's Bicycle Artist." He rode his bicycle while toting along his canvases and paints throughout the Jersey seashore and pinelands trails in search of characteristic scenery and ruins of historic sites. After graduating from Princeton University in 1908, he traveled, while working odd jobs, throughout the mid-west where he first began to sketch and paint the local scenery.

He later maintained an art studio on Snyder Street in Toms River, New Jersey from 1915 to 1945 and then in South Seaville, New Jersey from 1946 until his death in 1947. He was a World War I army veteran and served in France in the army camouflage corps. He was a self-taught artist and never received any formal art education.

 Mr. Knox exhibited at many local art shows in both Ocean and Cape May Counties in New Jersey. In 1917, 1920, and 1921, he exhibited with the Society of Independent Artists and was also affiliated with the American Artists Professional League and the Cape May County Art League.

His exploits were featured by New Jersey historian and author Henry Carlton Beck in his New Jersey folklore book The Roads of Home.
