A landscape and scenery painter and book illustrator, Granville Perkins was born October 16, 1830 in Baltimore, Maryland. At age fifteen, he became a scene painter for elaborate theatre productions, working with the Ravel family on plays such as "Mazulua, "The Green Monster" and "Jacko or the Brazilian Ape".

His first formal studies were in Philadelphia at the Pennsylvania Academy of Art under American landscape painter and etcher, James Hamilton (1819-1898). He also took drawing lessons (showing 500 of 2025 characters).
