Biography: Painter and illustrator Morgan Stinemetz was born in Washington, DC. He attended the Corcoran Art School, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, where he studied under Thomas Anshutz, and the Art Students League in New York. He exhibited at least one oil on canvas landscape (and possibly also a painting of a sailboat) in the groundbreaking International Exhibition of Modern Art in 1913 at the Armory in New York (also known as "The Armory Show" ). During World War I, he designed "camoflauge" for US Navy ships. He went on to a career as a prominent illustrator, working for publications including Colliers, Good Housekeeping, Woman's Home Companion, Outdoor Life, and the Pictorial Review, for which he served as Art Director. Stinemetz became known especially as an illustrator of animals (in particular, Scottie dogs), and judged dog shows throughout the Eastern US and England. In 1939, he accepted a job as art editor for the Methodist Publishing House, which brought him to Nashville, Tennessee in 1941. There, he became a member of the Tennessee Art League. Stinemetz died in the Nashville area in 1969. (Source: Morgan Stinemetz newspaper obituary, US Social Security Death Index, American Art Annual Vol. 10, 1913, "The Armory Show at 100" website, "Artist's Retreat" by Louise Davis for the Nashville Tennessean newspaper, Sept. 7, 1952).
