This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Glasgow, Scotland on March 4, 1902. At age 15 Wishart entered the Royal Naval Reserve College and then joined the British Merchant Marines which took him all over the world. Arriving in the U.S. in 1920, he lived in New York, Chicago, and Canada until 1922 when he settled in San Francisco. By 1929 he had chosen an art career and remained self-taught except for a brief period of instruction under Nelson Poole. During the Depression, he opened the Artist's Supper Club in North Beach which was a hangout for local artists (the walls were covered with their works). He later moved across the Golden Gate to Mill Valley where he remained until his death on Aug. 1, 1987. Exh: Gump's (SF), 1930s.
