This biography from the Archives of AskART:

An heir to the C&O Railroad fortune, Ron Van Sweringen grew up in Hampton Virginia and began painting when he was nine.  During his adult life he lived in Old Town Alexandria, VA and later retired to Florida. 


In 1982, Nancy Reagan discovered his work in a Georgetown gallery and purchased two impressionist paintings for their private residence at the White House.  In addition to having been hung at The White House, in both Reagan and Bush administrations, Van Sweringen's realist and representational-styled works have been included in exhibitions at the Corcoran Museum of Art and in various private local, national and international collections.
