Biography

(1888-1972)
Alfred Mitchell was born June 18, 1888, at York, Pennsylvania and came to San Diego in 1904. He first studied under Maurice Braun who encouraged him in his chosen career. He next attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia. In 1920, he had traveled in Europe on a scholarship. He studied with Arthur B. Carles, Joseph T. Pearson, Hugh H. Breckenridge, and David Garber, from 1916 to 1921, except for several years of military service. Later he also studied with Philip Hale and Edwin H. Blashfield. He acknowledged a debt to Edward W. Redfield whose art he greatly admired. He helped found the La Jolla Art Association in 1918 and exhibited there yearly for over forty years. In appearance, one can scarcely visualize this charming gentleman as a youngster, prospecting for gold or driving freight wagons and express stages in Nevada.
