This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Jonathan Batchelor was born on June 29, 1913 at sea aboard an American schooner off Vancouver Island. Batchelor moved to Oakland in 1921 and at age 13 enrolled at the CCAC.

He continued in Los Angeles at the Lukits School, Wilshire Art School, and Otis Art Institute. During the 1930s he worked on the WPA art projects and as an illustrator for UC and the city of Oakland. He taught at CCAC from 1946-52 and then for many years in the Oakland Adult Art School.

After settling in Canyon, CA in 1949, he remained there until his demise on Dec. 16, 2003.

His work includes portraits, female nudes, landscapes, and still lifes in oil, acrylic, pastel, bronze, stone, and wood. Primarily a realist, he also produced abstract and semi-abstract works.
