This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Frederick Counsel, born in Altoona, Pennsylvania on January 8, 1910, is remembered, not only for his portraits and penetrating social realism, but for his landscapes as well.  A consummate watercolorist and keen observer, Counsel often produced large watercolors from small studies executed on site.  He lived and painted in the Altoona area, which he loved, until his death in 1978.  Landscapes, such as Blue Hills, Pennsylvania (1936) evoke the beauty of his native region.

Counsel studied briefly at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the Parson School of Design, and by the 1930s his career was already well established.  He exhibited in New York City and Washington, D.C., and received numerous awards both in this country and abroad.  

Among his teachers were Thornton Oakley, Gertrude Schell, John Dull and George Sklaar. He was a member of No. 10 Gallery in New York City; of the Allied Artists of Johnstown, Pennsylvania; and was nominated to membership in the Society of Arts and Sciences in New York.

Counsel's biography is included in Who's Who in American Art for 1940-41. His works have been reviewed by Paris art journals, The Art News, The Art Digest, The New York Times and The New York Herald-Tribune.
