About the artist: James Emery Greer was born and educated in New England. The majority of his pieces are of landscape subject matter, especially the grandeur of mountains and the streams rushing through. Before relocating to Colorado, Greer worked as minister in Massachusetts. Once in Colorado he became the director of graphics and publications for National Jewish Hospital. In 1971 he was interviewed for an article in the Colorado newspaper Rocky Mountain News in which he said "I was always drawing and sketching," he recalled, "but I never thought to do anything with it. It was a chance invitation to the Boston Business and Professional Art Club that triggered the painting." Greer had an interesting technique of working on his paintings from top to bottom. He has a mural of Wilson Peak behind the teller’s desk of the Colorado State Bank located at 1600 Broadway in Denver. He continued to paint over the course of forty years and created a body of work that rivals his contemporaries. Greer’s paintings are in the permanent collections of the University of Indiana and Boston University as well as many private collections.
