This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Piedmont, CA on Dec. 4, 1898. After serving in the Navy during WWI, Newsom went into business in Napa growing dahlias. His interest in Japanese gardens led him to Japan in 1934 for four years of study. While there he made hundreds of pen-&-ink sketches. He later designed the waterfall in Golden Gate Park’s Japanese Tea Gardens. After WWII he made his home and studio in a barn in Mill Valley which was a Friday night gathering place for artists for many years. In 1975 Newsom retired to his wife’s hometown in Chocorua, NH where he remained until his demise on Feb. 23, 1996. He was the brother of artist Harold H. Newsom. Exh: In: Mill Valley Market.
