This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Ruth Carroll, born in 1899, graduated from Vassar College and thereafter established roots in New York City, where she pursued training at the Art Students League under Cecilia Beaux, Charles Bridgman, and Andrew Dasburg, the last of whom probably influenced her Cézannesque approach to painting. Bold color and patterned brush strokes were a trade-mark of her earlier work. She had a strong interest in color values and geometry, noticeable in the play of shadows within her compositions. She used this richly toned palette to create mood and vibration to the subject matter at hand and typically included significant detail within her works. She was known for city, genre, landscape, industrial and illustrations.

In the 1920s her work was exhibited at the Newark Museum and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. She later changed course within the art field, developing a career as an author-illustrator of children's books. From 1936 through the end of World War II, she had a staff position at King Features Syndicate, creators of the popular Popeye cartoons, among other series.
