Walter Farndon (1876–1964) began his career in the early 1890s painting watercolour floral motifs for a carpet factory. Determined to become a professional artist despite his family's financial difficulties, he left the carpet factory after a few years to enrol in free schools at the National Academy of Design. After thirteen attempts, his design of a chalk cast of Discobolus (discus thrower) - on which he worked every night for an entire month - was finally accepted by the Academy Committee in 1898.
Farndon's early tenacity was rewarded: he was elected Full National Academician in 1937. He also belonged to the New York Water Color Club, the American Watercolour Society, Allied Artists of America, the American Artists' Professional League, the Guild of American Painters, the National Arts Club, the New York Society of Painters, the Grand Central Art Galleries, and the Salmagundi Club, among others. He has exhibited his works and has won numerous awards throughout New York, the Pennsylvania Academy, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Corcoran Gallery and the Boston Art Club.
