<p> John W. Orth was born in Bavaria in 1889. He sold his first painting, a watercolor, when he was 13. At age 15 studied under a scholarship at Nuremberg&#39;s College of Fine Arts. Three years later, again on a scholarship, he attended Munich&#39;s Academy of Fine Arts. From there he went on to study at the Art Academy Julian in Paris and then traveled throughout Europe, studying works by the Old Masters. Already an established artist at 34, Orth left his troubled country in 1923 to escape certain persecution for his outspoken liberal views on race, religion, and politics. He came to America to start anew. Here, he felt certain, his restless spirit could continue to grow, his career to flourish in an environment of freedom, which encouraged individual expression and unrestrained thought. The paintings of William Orth range from impeccable miniatures to sweeping murals and encompass a wide range of subjects: florals, landscapes, seascapes, nudes, portraits, religious scenes, and his later works, &quot;meditations of the soul.&quot;</
