    George Gardner Symons (1861-1930)
    George Gardner Symons was born in Chicago, Illinois, in 1861, where he studied at the Art Institute and began a lifelong friendship with the artist William Wendt. With Wendt, Symons traveled to study and paint in Cornwall, England in 1898, and on that trip also studied in Paris, Munich, London, and St. Ives, where he adopted the plein air painting technique.

    Following a brief employment in commercial art, Symons moved to California with Wendt in 1903 and established a studio in Laguna Beach. Though active in California art circles, Symons always maintained his primary art studio in Brooklyn, New York. Painting out doors exclusively, Symons is best known for his expansive snowy landscapes painted in the Berkshire Mountains. George Gardner Symons died in Hillside, New Jersey, in 1930.
