Biography photo for Victor Coleman Anderson
A painter and illustrator who lived briefly in Texas in the early 1930s, Victor Anderson spent most of his life in New York state, settling in White Plains where he died in 1937. He was the son of Frank Anderson, a Hudson River School painter, and although his father died when he was eight years old, Victor drew and painted from the time he was a youngster.

When he enrolled in the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, he was accomplished enough to go directly into the life-drawing class. He studied with Birge Harrison at Woodstock, New York during one summer and also took classes from Hobart Nichols and Herman Dudley Murphy. In New York City, while he maintained a high-powered illustration career, he was an active fine-art painter and had memberships and exhibited at the Grand Central Art Galleries, Salmagundi Club and National Academy of Design.

As an illustrator, he did commission work for magazines including Life, Woman's Home Companion, Collier's, Country Gentlemen and The Ladies Home Journal" He illustrated two children's books, Tommy Trot's Visit to Santa Claus and Moonbeam Wish Book.
