(1933 - )
Jonathan Leo Fairbanks was born in 1933 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He is the son of Avard T. Fairbanks and nephew of J. Leo Fairbanks. Jonathan developed art skills as he assisted his father in his studio.
After his father took the Dean's position at the University of Utah and the family moved to Salt Lake City, Jonathan took art lessons from LeConte Stewart (1891-1990), an art professor at the University of Utah, muralist Florence Ellen Ware (1891-1971), watercolorist Mary Kimball Johnson (1906-1994), and Arnold Friberg, in whose studio he worked as an assistant for a couple of years. He had already graduated with a B.F.A. as a studio artist from the University of Utah.
His paintings are in The National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.; the Boston Public Library; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the St. Botolph Club, Boston; Wye House and Myrtle Grove on the Eastern Shore of Maryland; the Alhambra in southern Spain; and in many private collections.
