Born aboard ship near San Francisco on December 19, 1872, Lawrence Mazzanovich moved to Chicago at an early age where he began his art training at the Art Institute of Chicago.
He then continued at the Art Students League in New York City. During 1902-09 he was in France for further study in Paris and Giverny. From 1909-23 he was in an art colony in Westport, Connecticut.
About 1923 he moved to Tryon, NC where he remained until his death in 1959. He is buried in the Tryon Cemetery. His work prior to 1909 was subdued and tonalist; whereas, he then painted in a decorative style more akin to impressionism.
