William Thon was an American artist noted for highly abstracted landscape paintings.  He debuted as a professional artist in 1939 at the Corcoran Gallery Biennial* exhibition.  He was born in New York City in 1906, and spent his childhood summers camping on Staten Island. He also developed a great love of travel, and in 1933 made an eight-month voyage to the Cocos Islands in the Pacific.
