Carl Rawson was born in Des Moines, Iowa. He studied art at Cumming Art School, the Minneapolis School of Art, and the National Academy of Design in New York. He made his home in Minneapolis in 1906 for a position as a cartoonist for the Minneapolis Tribune where he worked for nine years. After leaving the Tribune he made a living by painting portraits and then idyllic landscapes from the Hudson River to Minnesota.
