Lens & Brush: Live interview with John Schoonover, president and curator, Schoonover Studios

April 11 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This interview, followed by a Q&A period, will provide biographical insights and background on Frank E. Schoonover’s travels, training, and inspirations—which led to his reputation as a prominent illustrator. Free. No registration required.

John Schoonover graduated from the University of Virginia and established Schoonover Studios Ltd. in 1969. The Schoonover Studios specialize in the works of Frank E. Schoonover, but works by other American illustrators, as well as art conservation, are also a vital part of the studio’s operations. Along with Louise Schoonover Smith and Lee Ann Dean, John is the co-author of the 2-volume Frank E. Schoonover Catalogue Raisonné. He is currently on the Board of Trustees at the Biggs Museum of American Art, and has served on the Board of Directors of the Delaware Humanities Forum, was a founding member of the Brandywine Arts Festival, and remains an active member of the Wilmington Rowing Club. John is currently working on a book celebrating the documentary photographs of Frank E. Schoonover, which is expected to be released in 2022.
