This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in New York City on Jan. 9, 1896.  Raised in an artistic milieu, DeForest was a pupil of his father.  After graduation from Williams College in Massachusetts, then UC Berkeley, he moved to Santa Barbara in 1917 and was a prominent landscape architect there until his death on March 30, 1949.  His horticulture paintings and small landscapes of the Baja peninsula and southern California were done prior to 1927.  He signed them "L de F, Jr".

Biography from Sullivan Goss - An American Gallery (Artists A-H):
Lockwood de Forest, Jr. made his name as one of Southern California's premier landscape architects in the 1920s, 30s and 40s. However, his first brief career was as a landscape artist and painter.

He was the son of a prominent painter of the Hudson River School, Lockwood de Forest, Sr., a member of the American National Academy of Design who painted primarily in the Northeast and California. Lockwood de Forest, Jr.'s known paintings are confined to Southern California and Baja, Mexico.

All of the documented canvases were completed before he was twenty-seven years old. There are no known exhibition-scale paintings by the artist. It was after these early years as an artist that he began the major portion of his career as a landscape architect.

Lockwood de Forest Jr.'s archives relating to his landscape architecture are kept at the University of California at Berkeley: all of his architectural drawing and presentation materials can be found there.
