This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Following is a biography based on information given to AskART.com by Jeffrey Gold of J. Gold Fine Arts, Bellmore, New York.

William McKillop is one of those legions of artists, well known during their
lifetime but virtually forgotten today. Although listed in "Who Was Who in
American Art" and other major reference guides, the information readily
available is quite limited. Thankfully, in 1925, Catherine Beach Ely
included an entire chapter on McKillop in her book "The Modern Tendency in
American Art." The following biography is culled from Ely's writings.

McKillop began his art studies at the St. Louis Art School under Edmund
Wuerpel prior to 1904. He studied in Paris at the Academy Julian under Jean
Paul Laurens and at the Academy of Beaux Arts under Ernest Laurent, and he
exhibited several paintings at the Paris Salon.

McKillop returned to the United States in 1913 and established a studio where he painted portraits. He exhibited widely including at the National Academy, The Chicago Institute, The Society of Independent Artists, The Allied Artists Exhibitions, and Panama-Pacific Exhibition in San Francisco where he won a silver medal.

McKillop is best known for his stylized depictions of woman in interiors,
but he also painted genre paintings, landscapes and, apparently, florals
(although Beach Ely did not discuss any in her book). He painted numerous
pictures of the Brittany countryside and of Tangiers. He also sketched
outdoors in the Berkshires near Lee, Massachusetts. During his lifetime, he
sold many paintings and was well regarded by his peers, as is evident by
his being selected to paint the portrait of the wife of George De Forest
Brush, which he exhibited at the National Academy .
