WATERCOLOR

Milford Zornes was born (1908) in Camargo, Oklahoma. He moved to Southern California during the 1920's. There he studied art with F. Tolles Chamberlin and Millard Sheets.

In the early 1930's, he was a member of the California Water Color Society and one of the earliest exponents of the California Style. At this time he painted Southwestern landscape scenes primarily, working on location. These works were exhibited in many shows throughout America and were included in the California Group traveling exhibitions.

During World War II, he was an official US Army war artist and traveled to Burma, India, and China on assignment. Since that time he has traveled all over the world and painted many foreign scenes.

Zornes is well known as an art instructor, particularly in the field of watercolor painting. He has taught at Pomona College, Otis Art Institute, University of California at Santa Barbara, Riverside Art Center, and Pasadena School of Fine Arts and in many watercolor workshops since the 1950's. In addition he painted several murals for the WPA during the depression and assisted Maynard Dixon on the Santa Fe mural in Chicago, Illinois. He is a past president of the California Water Color Society, wrote two books on watercolor painting, and has produced illustrations for books and magazines.

Zornes' watercolors are represented in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Butler Institute of Art, National Academy of Design, San Diego Museum of Art, Laguna Beach Museum of Art, U.S. War Department Collection and Library of Congress Collection.
