This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known for his unpretentious landscape works in oil and watercolor, painter Willilam Swift Daniell was born in San Francisco, California on April 26, 1865. At age 15 he visited the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston where he first viewed art. A fellow visitor asked to borrow his catalogue, a conversation ensued, and the teenager found himself accompanying the sculptor O. D. Morse back to his studio to see his work. Daniell began his art studies under Morse and, while in Boston, studied painting with Helen M. Knowlton. He then spent three years in Paris at Académies Vitti, Delecluse, and Julian under Jean Paul Laurens. While in Europe, he sketched in Venice, England, and Moret, France.

In 1905 he moved to Los Angeles and established a home base but appears to have been constantly on the move. In 1906 he was in Laguna Beach and during 1907-09 he was in New York City, New Orleans, and the Berkshire Hills.

In 1911 he opened the Daniell Gallery in Los Angeles located in the Blanchard Building and handled the work of other California artists as well as his own. He continued to paint and exhibit in Los Angeles and Laguna Beach until about 1923.

Illness curtailed his activities during the last decade of his life and Daniell died of pneumonia in Los Angeles on June 28, 1933. He was a member of The California Art Club, the Laguna Beach Art Association, and the Painters & Sculptors of Los Angeles.
