About Howard N. Watson
For original works of art that speak of the City of Brotherly Love, turn to Howard N. Watson of Wyncote, Pennsylvania. I'm a watercolorist and illustrator with more than 65 years of experience in painting Philadelphia's famous landscapes. My work has been commissioned by personalities like President Jimmy Carter, Vice President Walter Mondale, President Bill Clinton, singer Perry Como, Hall of Fame basketball coach Jack Ramsey, sportscaster Tom Brookshier, and famous art collector Set Momjian, among others. I've been the "Artist in Residence" at the White House during the term of President Clinton.
I've also conducted painting workshops nationally (including a workshop in Hawaii) and internationally. Among the countries that I've been to are Austria, Switzerland, France, Scotland, Canada, and Norway. Up to now, I still teach Art classes twice a week.
As a professional artist, I'm represented by the Carol Schwartz Gallery in Philadelphia. I'm also listed in "Who's Who in the East" and in "Who's Who in American Art." In addition, I've served the Boards of the Port of History Museum, the Victorian Society, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the Philadelphia Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts, the Philadelphia Committee to End Homelessness, and the Woodmere Art Museum.
