American artist Andrew Thomas Schwartz (1867 – 1942) is known for his landscapes, figures, and murals. His work depicts life in Louisville, Kentucky during the 19th century. The Blue Ridge Mountains frequently appear at the center of his landscapes along with rolling hills and small houses bathed in sunlight. From a young age, Schwartz developed an interest in art, leading to his enrollment in the Cincinnati Art Academy in 1890. He would later study at the Art Students League in New York with Hugh Mowbray. His efforts were rewarded with the Lazarus Scholarship to study in Italy from 1899 to 1902. Influenced by artists of the Italian Renaissance, Schwartz specialized in mural paintings. His works are on display at The Museum of Natural History, St. Gregory's Church in New York City, St. Bartholomew's Church in Kansas City, Sount Londonderry Baptist Church in Vermont, and on the ball room ceiling in the home of Mrs. E. D. Brandgee in Brookline, Vermont. Schwartz lived and worked in Brooklyn where he was a member of the American Watercolor Society and the New York Architectural League of New York.
