A Biographical Dictionary]; [Biography from "Artists in California, 1786-1940" by Edan Hughes: Harry Stuart Fonda was born in Marysville, California on August 24, 1864. His art studies were begun at the School of Design in San Francisco in the mid-1880s followed by study in Paris at Academie Julian under Laurens and Benjamin Constant. Upon returning to California in 1896, he settled in San Francisco. He was professor of drawing and painting at the Mark Hopkins Institute until 1899. Fonda had a large studio in his home at 3011 Sacramento Street where he taught privately. His oil painting, House of the Four Winds, was bought by President McKinley. He began making painting excursions to the Monterey Peninsula and, after the 1906 disaster, he moved to Monterey. Painting mainly during sunrise and sunset hours, Fonda produced many luminous coastal scenes, landscapes, and views of the Monterey Peninsula. After an auto accident in 1914, his productivity declined. He died in Monterey on August 10, 1942.
