Dubbed the Dean of Chicago Painters in the 1930s, 40s and 50s, Francis Chapin painted images of people he met in the Old Town neighborhood where he lived as well as landscape and figure subjects from his travels to Mexico, Europe and Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts.  In those days, it was not unusual to see Chapin with his easel set up on a street corner.  He was also a lithographer and art teacher.

Chapin was born in Bristolville, Ohio.  He earned a Bachelor of S (showing 500 of 9352 characters).
