Francis Livingston (b. 1953)  Artworks >>

Born in Cortez, Colorado, and living in Sun Valley, Idaho, Francis Livingston is a landscape painter much influenced by the work of Sargent and Whistler. HIs early art interest was comic-book art, but he was early discouraged by an instructor who told him, "You're not good at sequential stuff" because he was unable to duplicate figures in exact likenesses. However, that same instructor set him on a course of fine-art painting. He studied at the San Francisco Academy of Art and also taught there for ten years. He paints from his Idaho studio that is on the Big Wood River. Most of his landscape scenes suggest quiet, although a few have urban imagery. Source askart.com
