About the Artist: Fremont Ellis grew up in the mining town of Virginia City, Montana. His interest in art was sparked during a childhood trip to New York when his family visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art. While at the museum, he viewed works by several artists including Albert Bierstadt. He began painting on his own at the age of thirteen and spent three months at the Art Students League in 1915, his only formal training. Instead of pursuing a career in art, Ellis then traveled to Los Angeles, California, where he studied optometry. By the age of twenty, living in El Paso, Texas, Ellis' shop had failed and he abandoned optometry to pursue painting full time. In 1919, Ellis visited Santa Fe, married, and decided to take up residence. He was unsuccessful at selling his paintings and relocated to California. However, the primarily self-taught artist soon returned to Santa Fe where he found work as a photographer and sign painter. In 1921, he founded one of Santa Fe's earliest artist groups, "Los Cinco Pintores," with Josef Bakos, Walter Mruk, Will Shuster, and Willard Nash. The group established an artists' colony with the studios they built on the Camino Del Monte Sol. The avante-garde group, of which Ellis is said to have been the most conservative member, exhibited together until they disbanded in 1926. Ellis continued to live and paint in the area for almost sixty years. Exhibited: Society of Independent Artists, 1920; California Art Club, 1921; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 1922 (solo), 1924 (Henry E. Huntington Award); Oakland Art Gallery, 1950 (prize), 1953 (medal); Springville Museum, UT (purchase prize). Works Held: University of California, Los Angeles; Museum of New Mexico, Santa Fe; Thomas Gilcrease Institute of American History, Tulsa, OK; El Paso Museum, TX; Art Institute, Lubbock, TX.
