This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Monroe County, Ohio, W. Frederick Jarvis became a landscape painter, potter and art educator.  He studied at the Art Students League in New York and in Munich, Germany with Franz Mueller.  

In the early 1920s, he moved to Dallas, Texas, which became his lifetime home base. He opened his studio in Bush Temple, taught at the Merdick Fine Art School, and also displayed art pottery.  Between 1926 and 1927, he again lived in New York City, and there was a member of the Society of Independent Artists.  This period was followed by a brief time in San Antonia and re-settlement in Dallas.

Before 1928, he was on sketching trips to New Mexico and Arizona, and his subjects included the Grand Canyon.

Affiliations also included the Paint and Palette Club of Washington DC, and the Southern States Art League.
