Arthur Beckwith

American, 1860-1930

Arthur Beckwith was born in London, England on January 24, 1860. He was the son of noted watercolorist, Benjamin Beckwith. He studied art with his father and at South Kensington School in London before moving to San Francisco in 1884. For the next 20 years, Beckwith painted prolifically and created a large body of work, most of which went up in flames in the 1906 disaster. Despondent over his loss, he stopped painting for several years. Settling into a home across the Golden Gate in Greenbrae, he commuted by ferry daily to his studio in San Francisco in the old Monkey Block (now the Transamerica Pyramid). Beckwith died there on September 2, 1930. His work includes still lifes, landscapes and marines. Beckwith was a member of Bohemian Club, Sequoia Club, Marin Co. AA, San Francisco Art Association. He exhibited at Kanst Gallery, Los Angeles, 1915.
