This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Well known and prolific illustrator, Amos Sewell was born in San Francisco, California.
He worked in a San Francisco bank while studying nights at the California School of Fine Arts. He moved to New York City by working on a lumber boat via the Panama Canal. While in New York he studied with Guy Pene du Bois, Harvey Dunn and Julian Levi at the Art Students' League and the Grand Central School of Art.

He specialized in rural subjects including the frontier. Sewell created work for such publications as Country Gentleman, Saturday Evening Post and numerous textbooks. He is also known for his illustration of many posters during World War II for the Government's War Manpower Commission Project.
