Biography from Williams American Art Galleries:
Kenneth Earl Bates was born in Haverhill, Massachusetts in 1895.  He began studying art in 1914 when he enrolled in the Art Students League in New York under George Bridgman.  Two years later he was attending the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts with Daniel Garber, N. A. (a noted New Hope impressionist), Hugh Breckenridge and Joseph Pearson.

While at the Pennsylvania Academy in 1920, Bates won the Cresson Scholarship, which he used the next year to travel to Europe.  Accompanying Bates were fellow students and scholarship recipients, Arthur Meltzer and Alfred Mitchell.

Bates exhibited all across America from the mid 1920s up until the time of his death.   He was elected a member of the National Academy of Design by his peers and won several prizes for his work.   In 1943, American Artist magazine published an article on Bates and later in 1951, Bates himself authored “Brackman, His art and Teaching,” for the Noank Publishing Studio in Connecticut.   It was one of several art books that the artist wrote.

He passed away in Mystic Connecticut in 1973.
