(1893-1958)

 Arthur Kowalski (1893-1958) was an artist, painter, vocalist and teacher, known for his coastal views, landscapes and gardenscapes. Arthur was the son of Leo Kowalski and Emma Juergens, and younger brother to the artist-illustrator-muralist Edgar Kowalski (American, 1891-1968). He maintained his home and studio at 80 Park Street, Buffalo, NY. He taught art classes in Buffalo, the Boston hills, Boston, NY and along the Canadian shore. He often attended the Saturday Sketch Club at a cabin in Springbrook, NY, with his brother and fellow artists Charles E. Burchfield (American, 1893-1967), William J. Schwanekamp (American, 1893-1970) and Julius J. Lankes (American, 1884-1960) among others. The cabin was used by Buffalo art students who specialized in outdoor oil painting.

Kowalski studied art at the Buffalo Fine Arts Academy from 1913-16 in Buffalo, NY and the Art Students’ League in NYC. He also studied painting with Bolton Coit Brown (American, 1864-1936), John William Bentley (American, 1880-1951) in Woodstock, NY, and with Alexis Jean Fournier (American, 1865-1948) and Sandor Leopold Landeau (Hungarian-American, 1864-1924) in East Aurora, NY.
