Beall was born in Saratoga, Wyoming, but later moved to New York City to study art at the Pratt Institute and the Art Students League where he studied figure drawing and anatomy under noted artist George Bridgeman. Beall excelled at watercolor and he produced many illustrations for the Saturday Evening Post and Collier’s. After painting a portrait of then U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1936 for the cover of Collier’s magazine, he was appointed art director of the Democratic National Committee. His illustration of U.S. GIs raising the U.S. was used on the seventh U.S. War issued during World War II. It is reported that this bond raised over 156 billion dollars toward the war effort. It was featured in Clint Eastwood’s film, “Flags of Our Father”. At the end of the war he was invited the U.S.S. Missouri to record the Japanese surrender ceremony. He was a member of the American Water Color Society, d the Society of Illustrators.
