John H. Macarthur

MacArthur Studio
Rockville, MD

A child prodigy in the art world, he first picked up a brush at the tender age of four. By six, he was already experimenting with creating pigments from natural objects, showcasing a remarkable talent and dedication to his craft at such a young age. It was during his teenage years that his talent truly began to shine, with one of his portraits catching the eye of none other than President Kennedy himself. Before he even reached twenty, he had established himself as one of the renowned "Artists of Jackson Square" in New Orleans, cementing his reputation as a rising star in the art scene. However, like many child prodigies, he disappeared from the limelight.

After nearly 25 years away from the art world, he made a triumphant return in the early 90s, once again painting and selling his work. His pieces were in high demand, with prestigious collectors such as the Governor of Maryland's wife acquiring his artwork. His talent did not go unnoticed, as he was commissioned to create promotional artwork for major events such as the 2002 and 2003 Preakness Stakes. His commercial success led him to open MacArthur Studio, which has seen several relocations before settling in Rockville, Maryland, where his art has garnered widespread acclaim.

In recent years, he has seen a resurgence in his artistic career, participating in various shows and events across the state. His studio walls are adorned with over 20 first-place ribbons, a testament to his skill and creativity. A transformative trip to Europe in 2016 reignited his passion for art, infusing his work with a newfound energy and vibrancy. As he continues to create and innovate, the world is once again taking notice of John MacArthur's exceptional talent and unique artistic vision.

For those looking to add a touch of sophistication and creativity to their homes or offices, prints of his award-winning artwork are available for purchase. Embrace the beauty and elegance of his pieces, and bring a piece of his remarkable journey into your own space.
