   Geoffrey Biggs was born in London, England, but went through high school in America, and studied at the Grand Central School of Art. Among his teachers were Arthur Woeffle, Arshile Gorky, and Harvey Dunn.

    Biggs’s highly detailed and realistic work was first published in Collier’s, where it attracted wide attention, and was soon followed by commissions from most other periodicals, including The Saturday Evening Post, True, Liberty, Woman’s Home Companion, Coronet, Pic, and Good Housekeeping, as well as from many major and minor advertising agencies in New York.

    In addition, Biggs found time to exhibit at the Society of Illustrators and at the Midtown Galleries in New York.
