This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Greece on Nov. 1, 1885. Orfans had an art studio in Seattle in 1910. He served in France during World War One and appears to have settled in California after the war. He was a close friend of author Jack London and often a painting partner of Selden Gile. Due to the Depression, he worked as a carpenter during the 1930s. He died in Sonoma, CA on Aug. 9, 1948. His rare paintings of portraits, landscapes and seascapes are mostly signed, “S. OR.”
