Arthur Melton Hazard was born in Massachusetts, where he studied art at Boston's Cowles Art School & under Joseph DeCamp (1858–1923).  He also studied with Frank Duveneck (1848–1919) in Cincinnati.  He sailed to Paris, just as so many other contemporary American artists, to work at the Académies Colarossi & Julian, under Prinet & Blanc.  Most of his career was spent in Boston, painting landscapes & portraits - many of women in rich interiors - & he was principal of the School of Painting in 1904-17.  Hoping to improve his health, he moved to Los Angeles in 1923, where he painted landscapes & portraits of that town's famous residents.  While vacationing in France, he died near Paris on Dec. 26, 1930.
