Carl Beetz, born in San Francisco, was a prolific watercolorist and lithographer. He studied at the Art Students League in New York under George Bridgeman, the Grand Central Art School with Grant Reynard, the California School of Fine Arts in San Francisco, and the Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles. In 1935 Beetz became an instructor at Chouinard, and in 1944 he moved to San Francisco where he taught at the California College of Arts and Crafts, the Academy of Advertising Art and the City College of San Francisco.

In 1960 Janice Lovoos wrote of Carl Beetz’s work in an article titled “The Drawings and Lithographs of Carl Beetz” in American Artist Magazine. A catalog raisonné, “Carl Beetz: Reflections of California Life” was published by the University of the Pacific with an essay by Natalie Phillips.
