Walter Isaacs (1886-1964) - Walter F. Isaacs was born in Gillespie, Illinois in 1886. He began to draw at a very young age. Isaacs graduated from Millikin University in Decatur, IL, and also studied at the Art Students League of New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, Columbia University, and in Paris at the Colarossi Academy and the Academy Moderne.
From 1911 to 1913 he was Supervisor of Art for the public schools in Jeffersonville, Indiana, and later served for five years as Head of the Art Department at State Teacher College in Greeley, CO. In 1923, he was appointed Director of the School of Art, University of Washington, a position that he held until his retirement in 1954 as Professor Emeritus.
Both as artist and teacher he made a significant contribution to the art world in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. As a teacher, he trained hundreds of students, many of whom went on to become noted artists, teachers, and designers, and whom achieved distinction in careers associated with the visual arts. He was also the author of articles for several national periodicals. As an artist he acquired international recognition, exhibiting widely and receiving numerous awards and honors.
He was represented at the Paris Salons in 1922 and 1923, the Golden Gate Exposition, San Francisco in 1939, the Carnegie Institute, Pittsburgh in 1945, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York in 1934. He had two New York one-person exhibits, one at the 460 Park Avenue Gallery in 1939 and another at the Passedoit Gallery in 1945. During the past four decades his work has appeared in many Seattle and West Coast exhibits. He was represented in most of the Northwest Annuals at the Seattle Fine Arts Academy and later, at the Seattle Art Museum. In Seattle, he was honored by one person exhibits at the Henry Art Gallery at the University of Washington in 1950, at the Zoe Dusanne Gallery in 1956, and previously at the Seattle Art Museum in 1934, 1938, 1946, 1954 and 1957.
