Biography   DeWitt Parshall


Born in Buffalo, NY on Aug. 2, 1864, DeWitt Parshall, during his college years, had a marked talent for caricature, much to the dismay of the faculty members.  After graduating from Hobart College in 1885, he sailed for Dresden where he entered the Royal Academy.  He had further study in Paris with Alexander Harrison and at Académies Cormon and Julian.

After moving from New York City to California in 1917, he settled in Santa Barbara where he remained until his death on July 7, 1956.  Parshall is best known for his paintings of the Grand Canyon, most of which were done during the years 1910-17; whereas, in California he specialized in landscapes and florals.
