This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Alexander Farnham studied with Anne Steele Marsh, Van Deering Perrine, and at the Art Students League with George Bridgman, William C. McNulty and Frank Vincent DuMond.  While in the Navy (1944-1946), he painted murals and also did covers, illustrations and cartoons for Naval publications.

He has won over 100 major awards and is listed in WHO'S WHO IN AMERICAN ART, WHO'S WHO IN THE EAST, and AMERICAN ARTISTS.  Recent prizes include the Hunterdon County Cultural & Heritage Award in the Lambertville Historical Society Annual Juried Exhibit at the Coryell Gallery in 2001 and Artist View of Hunterdon County at the Art Museum in Clinton, NJ in 1999.  Over the past fifty years he has lectured and served on numerous national, regional and state exhibition juries.

Alexander Farnham has exhibited in numerous one-man shows throughout the United States and Canada.  His works are in collections of the Newark Museum, National Art Club, Monmouth College, Mercer Medical Center, New Jersey Manufacturers Insurance Co.; eleven paintings are at Morgan Guaranty Trust Co., James A. Michener Collection, the Harkness Collection and the Justice Center in Flemington.  In 1976, he was one of the thirteen leading American artists commissioned by the Franklin Mint to design pewter Plates Commemorating the American Revolution.

As an author-illustrator, Mr. Farnham has published Architectural Patterns - Subjects for the Artist's Brush, TOOL COLLECTORS HANDBOOK, EARLY TOOLS OF NEW JERSEY AND THE MEN WHO MADE THEM, SEARCH FOR EARLY NEW JERSEY TOOLMAKERS and has written many articles on art and antiques for national publications.
