Biography from Crocker Art Museum Store:
Jack Macartney was born in San Francisco, CA on March 15, 1893. Jack was first taught to paint by his father Henry C. Macartney. After moving to southern California, he further studied with William T. McDermitt, Arthur Beaumont, Eliot O'Hara, Edgar Payne, and Sam Hyde Harris. For 30 years he was in the woodwork manufacturing business in Los Angeles while painting in his leisure. He also taught locally at the Businessmen's Art Institute. Upon retirement, he moved to Laguna Beach in 1958 and was active in the local art scene until his death on July 31, 1976. Realistically depicted, his scenes of San Pedro harbor, the coast, and missions are from the brush of a talented painter.
