      • GERARD CURTIS DELANO MONUMENT VALLEY OIL PAINTING
        Jun. 11, 2022

        GERARD CURTIS DELANO MONUMENT VALLEY OIL PAINTING

        Est: $5,000 - $7,500

        Oil on Canvas Board. Subject is Monument Valley on the Arizona/Utah border in the Navajo Nation. 8" by 10" unframed. 10" by 12" framed. In the foreground it has a Navajo Indian Riding a horse, this figure is small and hard to make out. Condition report: Blacklight reveals three very small areas of touch up in the bottom right corner as shown. Painting appears to have some soiling and may benefit from a cleaning. Born in Marion, Massachusetts on Cape Cod, Gerard Delano, with a strong New England heritage, became a well-known illustrator and fine-art painter of western scenes, particularly Navajo Indians in landscape. He was the son of a sea captain and named for Gerard Curtis, the man who owned the ship that his father commanded. He began his art studies in New Bedford and as a youth sold illustrations to Life Magazine. His first training was at the Swaine Free School of Design near Marion, and in 1910, he enrolled at the Art Students League in New York City, becoming the pupil of George Bridgman, Frank Vincent DuMond, and Edward Dufner. He also worked as a textile designer. At the Grand Central School of Art, Gerard Delano studied with illustrators Dean Cornwell, Harvey Dunn and N.C. Wyeth. He became a successful commercial artist and illustrator, working in New York City until 1919 when he first came West and worked on a Colorado Ranch. In 1920, Gerard Delano homesteaded at Cataract Creek in Summit County, Colorado, and built his own dirt-roof studio. In 1933, he settled there permanently, but found the life hard because of the isolation, lack of art sales from being out of contact with his eastern market, and extreme winters in the high altitude. From there he took a trip into Navaho country, where the subject matter set the course of his career. He was fascinated by the colorful clothing of the Indians against the spectacular canyons of Arizona, and he painted scenes of Indians herding sheep and goats, emphasizing subtle coloration and mystical, contemplative mood. Needing to be near libraries for authentic research, he commuted to New York for illustration assignments. He later established a studio in Denver, having earned enough money from illustrating a weekly magazine feature called "The Story of the West". He spent his summers in Opdike, Illinois, his wife's home town.

Robinson, Denver, Colorado, circa 1940s; By descent to the present owner. Born in Massachusetts, Gerard Delano was fascinated by art at an early age. Having studied with illustrators Dean Cornwell, Harvey Dunn and N.C. Wyeth at the Grand Central School of Art, Delano established himself as a successful commercial artist and illustrator in New York until 1919. His first trip to the West was to the mountains of Summit County, Colorado in 1919 to work as a ranch hand. In 1920, he built his own studio at Cataract Creek in Summit County, Colorado, and later established a home and studio in Denver. Afternoon in Autumn  , Summit County, Colorado is an exquisite rendering of the terrain that drew Delano west. Typical of his strikingly bold palette, the vibrant yellow hues illuminate the fall landscape while the saturated blues create the perfect setting for billowing white clouds above. The organic, fluid lines and soft edges of the composition create a sense of peace and harmony with the land – a characteristic that is certainly distinguishable in Delano's paintings of the American West.

Bowman, Walking with Beauty: The Art and Life of Gerard Delano, Denver, Colorado, 1990, p. 171, illustrated.S.H. McGarry, Honoring The Western Tradition: The L.D. "Brink" Brinkman Collection, Kerrville, Texas, 2003, p. 107, illustrated.Gerard Curtis Delano was an aspiring artist, determined to master the specific genre of illustration, from a very early age. Submitting countless drawings to Life Magazine during his teenage years, he was finally paid for an illustration mailed to the magazine in 1909, which provided him the assurance he needed to commit his career to his artistic pursuit. Soon after, Delano moved to New York in 1910 and began studies in magazine illustration at the Art Students League and the Grand Central School of Art. His most instructive teachers came to be famed illustration artists, among the most influential were Dean Cornwell and Newell Convers Wyeth.1 During the quiet summer months which provided little employment for illustrators, the artist embarked on his first trip West, in 1919, beginning in Denver, Colorado, and eventually Cheyenne, Wyoming. The artist furiously sketched and produced watercolor studies of the cowboys and ranchers that inhabited the region. The West became a fascination for Delano and inspired the prolific period of commercial illustrations that employed him through the next few decades. The artist's skills as an illustrator were realized in cover illustrations for Ace-High magazine, which commissioned numerous cover illustrations from the artist beginning in 1923. Work followed from many of the Western themed publications including some of the artist's most famous images reproduced by Star Magazine. As regular journeys West continued, the artist eventually visited Navajo country in 1940, which included locations such as Monument Valley, Steamboat Canyon, and Canyon de Chelly. These places were so profound an inspiration, they served as almost spiritual experiences for Delano, who endured as a deeply religious man throughout his adulthood. His work henceforth became consumed with the Indian people and their land. 2 At center of the present work, a Menominee tribesman is seen rowing across calm waters, his profile reflected in these waters like still, mirrored glass. His canine companion is perched at the front of their vessel, seemingly the hunter's eyes and ears as they set out on the day's hunt. The Indian figure and his canoe appear in stark contrast from the landscape that surrounds them, illuminated by amber tones against the pastel water and sky. The birds that float through the sky appear hazy through the fog-like film which obscures the background of the composition from the central figures framed in the foreground. The painted symbols and jointed edges of the canoe are crafted in great detail but eventually blur into muted hues at the far end of the boat. Delano's use of atmospheric perspective creates the airy quality which characterizes Menominee Hunter. The quiet solitude which emanates from the present work is a characteristic exhibited in many of his most successful paintings. Delano once referred to his paintings as "designed realism."2 To this effect one can see how the present work is highly realistic in execution but decorated with romanticism for his subject, a sentiment which harkens to his training as an illustration artist. The spirited connection between human and animal was often a relationship he portrayed in many of his illustrations. The present work harmoniously combines Delano's stylistic technique as an illustrator with his favored subject matter. Menominee Hunter portrays, with great affection, the natural and human spirit of the American West.1 D.J.
