This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following text, submitted by Juan Lopez, is the obituary of the artist from the Online Newsroom of the University of St. Thomas, Houston. 

Widely recognized contemporary painter and printmaker James “Jack” Boynton, who was instrumental in creating the studio arts program at University of St. Thomas, died on April 5, 2010.  Boynton joined the faculty at St. Thomas in 1969 and served as a professor until 1985.

“Jack Boynton, Earl Staley and Pat Colville, the three arts-in-residents, were the nucleus of the Studio Arts Department at that time, “said Professor Emeritus of Art History Nancy Jircik. “Boynton was an extremely versatile painter and sculptor. He could look at a piece of paper and see a dozen possibilities. He was a wonderful teacher with dedicated students.”

Boynton was a key figure in the post-World War II Houston arts scene. According to a Houston Chronicle article written by Douglas Britt, Boynton garnered national attention in the 1950s and 1960s for his modernist, largely abstract paintings. His work is owned by the MFAH, Museum of Modern Art, Whitney and Guggenheim Museums, Dallas Museum of Art, Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Amon Carter Museum and the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Conn.

Professor Emeritus of Drama Sam Havens remembers those years fondly. “I remember Jack very well from those wonderful 70s at UST. Earl Staley and Jack ran the program together. They were fellow artists and good friends. Jack was a nice guy with an amazing talent.”

Boynton received a BFA in 1949 and MFA in 1955 at the Texas Christian University.

He is survived by his wife, Sharon and two daughters.
