Part of the following biography was contributed by Dan Costigan, son of the artist.

A native of Providence, Rhode Island, John Costigan was a skilled landscape and figure painter who disdained portraits because "the subjects want flattering pictures."

He was orphaned and raised in New York by his aunt and uncle, the parents of songwriter, George M. Cohan.  Mainly self-taught, Costigan studied briefly at the Art Students League and worked as a lithographer of theater posters.& (showing 500 of 3688 characters).
