John Ross Key (1837-1920)

John Ross Key was raised by his grandfather, Francis Scott Key the author of the Star Spangled Banner. The younger Key studied art in Munich and Paris before settling in Boston where he established a studio. Key enjoyed success while in Boston and showed his works at the National Academy of Design, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art and the Boston Art Club. In 1869 he moved to San Francisco. While in California, he traveled extensively, painting scenes of Yosemite, Carmel, Tahoe and the Giant Sequoia trees. Key left California after only two years and died in Baltimore in 1920.
