Biography   Archibald Burns


Born in Campbell, CA on April 11, 1894 of English parents. In his early teens Burns moved with his family to San Rafael, CA and remained a resident of Marin County for the rest of his life. Art studies were at the CSFA where he was greatly influenced by Frank Van Sloun, and while there was awarded a scholarship for further study at AIC. Burns was a cofounder of Marin Society of Artists in 1927 and served as their president during its early years. An Impressionist, he made many sketching trips throughout northern California, particularly Lake Tahoe, Carmel, and Yosemite; however, most of his subject matter was drawn from the area around his home in Marin County. Burns died at his home in Kentfield on Sept. 6, 1959. Exh: Marin Co. Fair
