Harold Von Schmidt
(1893-1982)
Born in California, Harold Von Schmidt first studied art at the San Francisco Art Institute and the California College of Arts and Crafts. In 1924 he came East for further training with Harvey Dunn, whose influence is evident in Von Schmidtís dramatic use of color and design. He specialized in Western paintings, based upon his own experiences as a cowhand, as well as stories he heard from his "forty-niner" grandfather who raised him. Over his long career Von Schmidt illustrated stories for The Saturday Evening Post, American Magazine, Collierís and Womanís Home Companion.
