Provenance: Private Collection, Arizona Exhibited: Dill Gallery, Denver City Hall, 1941 Illustrated: Denver Post, August 10,1941 About the Artist: John Edward Thompson was one of Colorado's most acclaimed modernist painters. He was born in the East Buffalo, New York, and first studied at the Art Students League in New York with L.W. Hitchcock and also at the Academie Julian in Paris with J.P. Laurens in 1907. In 1917, Thompson moved to Denver. He organized a Colorado Armory Show in 1918, undaunted by the negative attitude that modern art received in the first half of the 20th century. Thompson began teaching at the Denver Academy of Applied Art and later taught at the University of Denver. While teaching at the University of Denver he helped to found the Chappell House (later known as the Denver University art department). Through the exposure he gained from his mural work, Thompson quickly made a name for himself among Denver society. In 1928, Thompson became one of the founding members of the Denver Artists Guild. Thompson spent many summers painting and teaching in Santa Fe, and made important contributions to that art community as well. For his dedication to art and to the community, John Edward Thompson came to be known as the 'Dean of Colorado Painters.' ©David Cook Galleries, LLC - Expedited and International Shipping Available; please contact us for a quote
