This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter of portraits and landscapes, Royal Stowell used oil, crayon, charcoal, and colored pencil. Many of his sitters were foremost celebrities of the day, and some of his subjects held high political or prime academic positions. Their titles ranged from Governor to President. Some were professors or department heads associated with leading universities.

An article in "The Reno Gazette" cited some specific details regarding the artists exhibit in that area. (Carson, Nevada May 11,1940) "The artist has painted many prominent persons in the United States among those shown in Carson were likenesses of ex-Govenor Richard Kirman of Nevada, Thomas Garrigue Masaryk, late president of Czecho-Slovakia, and president of the University of Redlands in California. A portrait of Mrs. Stowell's father, Dr Philip Valentini, was featured in the show. He was a prominent archaeologist and historian who translated the ancient Aztec calendar stone which is in a museum in Mexico City".

"Mr. Stowell's handling of colored pencil is deft and there is charm in his portraits of women and children thus felicitously rendered."

"In all of his portraits. Mr. Stowell shows keen perception for characteristics, which he potrays with simplicity."


This article submitted February 2004 was written by Jim Kieley, Woodbury Ct. 2/28/04. His sources are direct observation of artists work, "Reno Gazette" May 11,1940, and Peter Falk, "Who Was Who in American Art".

Kieley wrote: "I have acquired two colored pencil portraits by this artist. Each has a different physiognomy.. One is a profile of a young woman with upswept coif. The other is a three quarter view. The artist captures her impish smile; her fine features are framed by soft mid-length wavy hair. The profile exhibits a sophisticated sensibility. The other is a character study, which expresses a sense of curiosity and playfulness."
