This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Oakland, CA in 1906. Wilson spent his childhood in Baltimore, MD but returned to Oakland in 1921. He worked as a longshoreman in San Francisco during the early years of the Depression. Opting for an art career, he studied at the CCAC and privately with Maurice Logan. A swimming accident in the early 1930s left him crippled and, while recuperating, he began painting watercolors. His works received good reviews from local critics. In 1940, at the peak of his career, he suffered a mental collapse and was confined to mental institutions in Stockton and Norwalk where he remained until his death on Sept. 6, 1972. His works are broad realism with amounts of abstraction. During his seven year art career, he painted 225 watercolors, mostly outdoor scenes and landscapes.
