Biography  
William Snyder


Known regionally for popular iconographic imagery relative to everyday American culture, William Snyder would often create parodies of old masterpieces such as Rembrandt's "The Night Watch."

He was born in San Francisco and grew up in Los Angeles. He attended the Chouinard Art Institute and San Francisco State College where he earned a BFA in 1954 and an MFA in 1957. From 1961 to 1963, he did graduate studies at Stanford University. In 1963, he established a studio in Oakland and taught at Laney College until the early 1990s when Parkinson's disease led to early retirement.
