This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Wheeling, West Virginia, William Dovener was primarily and illustrator who painted purely for pleasure and never exhibited. He settled in Washington DC where he was a lawyer early in his career and then for 22 years an illustrator for the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In that capacity, he won a competition for painting the best portrait of the first Secretary of Agriculture. Some of his illustrations were in the July 1914 issue of National Geographic.

He studied at Kenyon College, the University of Virginia, with Howard Helmick in Georgetown, and in Paris from 1903 to 1904 at the Colarossi and Julian Academies.
