This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Denver, CO on Sept. 14, 1872, Lawrence Murphy grew up in Denver as the son of a wealthy banker who disinherited him after he chose an art career.  Sailing for Paris, he studied at Académie Julian, and in NYC with George Bridgman and Frank DuMond.

He came to California in 1915 to attend the Panama Pacific Exposition and opted to remain.  Settling in Los Angeles, he taught at the Art Students League, UCLA, and at the Chouinard Art School from 1926 until his death on Sept. 9, 1947.

His work was considered very modern and daring by the art standards of 1915.
