Thomas Yanosky was born in Colver, PA in 1918. He studied at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, DC, and during the Second World War served as a cartographer in the Army Map Service.

After the war he continued to work with the Map Service, but became increasingly involved in the Washington art world. He had been befriended by Duncan Phillips in the late 1930s, and Phillips later acquired a painting of his for the Phillips Collection in the early 1950s.

From 1971 to 1978 Yanosky lived in Arizona, and two paintings from the group we are offering relate directly to this period. His work has been included in exhibitions at the Phillips Collection (Phillips Memorial Gallery), Smithsonian Institution, Corcoran Gallery of Art, and the Phoenex Art Museum. Yanosky died in 2014.
