Biography from ArtSanDiego:
Harold Landaker was born in Ohio on December 12, 1892.  His early studies included time spent at the Art Institute of Chicago.  He is the husband of artist Mabel Holtz Landaker.

He met his wife to be at the Art Institute of Chicago.  They spent quite a few years afterwards traveling with a circus.  Both were involved in painting sets, and decorations for the circus environment.  Landaker moved to Southern California in 1940 where he landed a job with MGM studies.

In the mid to late 1940's Landaker relocated to the Monterey Peninsula where he joined the Carmel Art Association.  His wife, Mabel, was also a member.  He became very active in the local art scene, and finally settled in the small town of Pacific Grove.  He is well known for his whimsical renditions of circus characters, birds, and other animals.

Landaker died in Monterey on November 6, 1966.
