This biography from the Archives of AskART:
William Yarrow was an American mural painter, born in Glenside, Pennsylvania to a prominent Philadelphia family. He was educated at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and the Academy Grand Chaumiere, Colorossi, in Paris. He spent ten years in Florence, Italy studying and painting, and maintained a studio there, where he did much of his work.

During World War I, Yarrow served in the field artillery and organized the camouflage school at Camp Jackson. His artistic talent was recognized when he was in his early twenties, and he received the silver medal in 1915 at the Panama Pacific Exposition in San Francisco. A year later he received the gold medal of the Art Club of Philadelphia for his full-length painting, Nude.

One of his most important works is a sports mural of five panels for Princeton University on which he worked for three years. Another of his best known murals is one depicting the history of music, which hangs in the studio of the home of Lawrence Tibbett in Wilton, Connecticut.

Yarrow is represented in the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. He was the author of "Robert Henri", biography of the prominent social-realist painter.
