George Tooker

Tooker was raised by his Anglo/French-American father George Clair Tooker and English/Spanish-Cuban mother Angela Montejo Roura in Brooklyn Heights and Bellport, New York, along with his sister, Mary Fancher Tooker. Tooker wanted to attend art school rather than college, but ultimately abided by his parents’ wishes and majored in English literature at Harvard University, while still devoting much of his time to painting. During 1942, he graduated from college and then entered the Marine Corps but was discharged due to ill-health. He had a long-time partner, William R. Christopher, who died in 1973. Although he was raised in a religious Episcopalian family he later converted to Catholicism.

Tooker died on March 27, 2011, due to kidney failure.
