Description

Howard Sewall came to Portland in 1920 from Washington, D.C. where he had helped found the Washington School of Art. Sewall considered himself self-taught, though he studied with a number of Oregon artists, including Clyde Keller, Sidney Bell and C.S. Price. In addition to a thriving career as a commercial artist, during the 1930s Sewall worked for the Federal Art Projects in Oregon creating murals for Timberline Lodge and Oregon City High School. He experimented with a variety of modernist elements in his work and his style became increasingly abstract after 1950.
