In 1920 Frank Tenney Johnson moved to Alhambra, California, and began to focus more time and attention on his easel paintings rather than his illustration work. Johnson and his painting partner Clyde Forsythe founded the Biltmore Art Gallery at this time as well.
From 1931 to the end of his life Frank Tenney Johnson (also known as F. Tenney Johnson) spent most of his time at the studio he built in Cody, Wyoming. He would spend his time doing studies and sketches in Yellowstone National Park and then the rest of his time at his easel. His love of the American West never faded, and he died at the pinnacle of his career in 1939 from spinal meningitis. His paintings are found in numerous museums throughout the world, and today his work still brings incredibly high prices at auction.
