Born January 25 1908 in Oklahoma, Zornes became known for his watercolour works in the “California Style”. An early talent for drawing developed but he was unable to settle down, studying architecture and engineering but not really being prepared to study for either. Reverting to his passion for art, during The Depression he focused on watercolours on paper, possibly due to their inexpensive nature compared to oil and canvas. He had an urge to travel but many of his works depict American landscapes.
