Biography from Crocker Art Museum Store:
Painter, illustrator, teacher. Born of noble birth in Krakow, Poland on April 10, 1888.
Stan Foray was raised in an atmosphere of wealth and art. His father, Count Michael Poray, was an established landscape painter in his native city. The younger Foray studied art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow and in Paris. He lived in Moscow and Siberia where he was art director of the First Art Theatre in Tomsk in 1918. Uprooted by the Russian Revolution, he decamped to the Orient where for three years he painted the Imperial family and other notables. After settling in Los Angeles in 1921, he soon became active in the local art world. The interior of his home, which he both designed and built, was a miniature reproduction of a Japanese temple. During his early years in California he painted landscapes, coastals, the missions, and nocturnes; however, later in life he specialized in still lifes. Evidenced in his painting is his study of ancient Chinese culture, philosphy, and art. His works were reproduced in the Los Angeles Times (12-2-1928) and Art Digest (11-1-1947). Poray was a resident of Los Angeles at the time of his death at the airport in NYC on Oct. 18, 1948. Member: Calif. Art Club; San Diego Art Guild; Société des Artistes Polonais (Paris); LAAA; Painters and Sculptors of LA. Exh: Springville (UT) Museum, 1929; Stendahl Gallery (LA), 1929, 1931, 1938 (solos); Hollywood Riviera Club, 1936; GGIE, 1939.
