This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Brisout, France on April 2, 1885, Gjura Stojana was educated in Europe and the Orient.  After arriving in America in 1901, he adopted the name George Curtin Stanson, which he used until 1929 when he had it legally changed back to Stojana.

During 1908-09, he studied in San Francisco at the Institute of Art and then worked in the art department of the San Francisco Chronicle.  In 1918 he moved to Los Angeles where he exhibited locally and had a studio-home.

Throughout his career he divided his time between Los Angeles and Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Stojana died in Los Angeles on September 16, 1974.
