|This biography from the Archives of AskART:|
|Malcolm McVickar was born in Tuxedo Park, New York, in 1915. He attended Harvard University and was graduated from Columbia School of Business in 1938. He studied with Anzonella K. McVickar, Zoltan Szabo, Julius Delbos, George Post, Richard Yip, Christopher Schink, Barbara Irvine, and Jerry Stitt. |
During WWII he commanded several minesweepers in the Atlantic, Pacific and Far East, retiring as a Lieutenant USNR. He was a real estate broker, and held various industrial positions over a 40 year period, prior to retiring and devoting his uninterrupted attention to painting.
One of his favorite sports is sailing, and the love of it is reflected in his water scenes. In 1997 at the Napa County Fair in Northern California (a local show in which he often enters his most recent work) he was awarded "Best of Show, All Media," First Place in watercolor for his elegant "Victorian Splendor " Second Place for his dramatic "Seventh Wave," and Honorable Mention for "Reflected Light on the Palisades."
He lived in the East, Middle West, Southern California, Marin County in Northern California, and St. Helena, California, among the vineyards of Napa Valley, America's Provence.
He died in Marin County in 2009.
