This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Rockford, Illinois on Jan. 1, 1868, Hobart moved to California with his family when he was a small boy.  He studied art in San Francisco at the School of Design under Stanton and Cadenasso, and privately with William Keith.  He then spent three years at the ASL in NYC under Blum and Bridgman and completed his art training in Paris.

Returning to the U.S., he worked in NYC as art editor for the Burr-McIntosh magazine before moving to Monterey, CA in 1911.  The turning point in his career came in 1915 at the PPIE.  During the exposition Hobart was awarded a silver medal and received praise from local art critics for his development of color monotype prints.  When the Oakland Civic Art Gallery opened in 1916, an entire room was devoted to his monotypes.  In that year Hobart left the Monterey Peninsula and established a studio in San Francisco.  From his studio came portraits of Carl Oscar Borg, Mrs. Leo Lentelli, and Gottardo Piazzoni.  Often compared to Cézanne, he is nationally known for his Impressionist portraits and landscapes.  His final years were spent in nearby Los Gatos; he died at Napa State Hospital on Feb. 23, 1948.
