        Nov. 06, 2022

        CHARLIE DYE "THE SCOUTS" OIL ON PAPER ON BOARD

        Est: -

        Charlie Dye (1906 - 1972) "The Scouts" Oil on Paper on Board. Born in Canon City, Colorado, Charlie Dye became a painter of western genre inspired by the painting of Charles Russell. From childhood, he was a sketcher, but it wasn't until a horse fell on him that he considered art as a career. In the hospital recovering from his injuries, he saw reproductions of Russell's paintings in a magazine, and that exposure set his career of portraying the lives of cattlemen. Dye was a successful illustrator in New York, doing assignments for Saturday Evening Post, Argosy, Outdoor Life and The American Weekly. However, a trip to California alerted him to how little quality Western art existed, and he soon began vacationing and painting in the West, finally establishing a studio in Denver, Colorado and becoming a partner in the Colorado Institute of Art. Because of the wide acceptance of his painting, he gave up teaching and illustrating and in 1960, moved to Sedona, Arizona, where he gained recognition for his oil paintings of western scenes. On June 23, 1965, he, Joe Beeler, John Hampton along with George Phippen, organized the organization we now call The Cowboy Artists of America. George Phippen was its first and Charlie Dye the second president. The group is devoted to the painting and sculpture tradition of Charles Russell and Frederic Remington, and began with artists who not only depicted cowboys but were working cowboys themselves. His work is in the collection of well known Museums such as: Desert Caballeros Western Museum (Wickenburg, AZ), Favell Museum of Western Art and Indian Artifacts (Klamath Falls, OR), Haley Memorial Library & History Center (Midland, TX), Leaning’ Tree and Sculpture Garden of Western Art (Boulder, CO), National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum (Oklahoma City, OK), Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum (Canyon, TX), Pearce Collections Museum (Corsicana, TX), Rockwell Museum of Western Art (Corning, NY), Sangre De Cristo Arts Center (Pueblo, CO), The Museum of Western Art (Kerrville, TX), Tucson Museum of Art (Tucson, AZ), Woolaroc Museum (Bartlesville, OK), Zelma Basha Salmeri Gallery - Collection (Chandler, AZ).

        Charlie Dye (American, 1906-1972) Maverick

        Est: $12,000 - $18,000

        Charlie Dye (American, 1906-1972) Maverick oil on board signed Charlie Dye (lower right) 27 x 36 inches Charlie Dye, Joe Beeler, John Hampton, and George Phippen came up with the idea of the Cowboy Artists of America back in 1964, while on a roundup together. Of his own art, Dye- with characteristic self-deprecation- observed, "I have always tried to paint what I can remember of a life a led before I became dishonest and studied art. My old man could have forgiven me if I had turned out playing piano in a whorehouse, but artists rated one step below pimps in his book." For Dye, authenticity reigns over all, though in a superb painting like Maverick, we see balance in composition and attention to the beauty of nature running a close second. -James D. Balestrieri

He was a hit with audiences and eventually moved to California, where he spent downtime on set sketching his home and beloved horse from memory. Longing for ranch-life, by age 17, Dye was a top hand with colts, working at ranches across Southern California, Oregon and Arizona, and even rodeoing. Many of the ranches' bunkhouses now displayed his drawings of bucking horses and ranch scenes.3 A book of Charles M. Russell drawings introduced Dye to the idea of becoming a professional artist. In early 1926, he moved to Chicago to attend the Art Institute and American Academy of Art, where, under Felix G. Schmidt's tutelage, Dye's career hit a new stride in advertisement illustrating. Schmidt moved his studio to New York City in 1935, and Dye followed, working first at a commercial studio, then a partnership with Schmidt in Schmidt Studios, painting illustrations and covers for publications such as The Saturday Evening Post. In 1947, Dye moved his family to Virginia to set up his own studio and continued illustrating for New York accounts, including American Weekly and Argosy. In 1956, when visiting his ill sister out west, he was surprised Western art was selling well in galleries. Dye planned a permanent move back west and began painting. Fortuitous connections led Dye to two of his longest-standing gallery relationships, first in 1957 in Taos, New Mexico, and in 1959 in Scottsdale, Arizona. Initially splitting time between painting and teaching at the Colorado Institute of Art, by 1962, able to paint full-time, Dye and his wife permanently moved to Sedona, Arizona. Surrounded by cattle ranches and landscape, Dye produced some of his finest paintings from this studio and solidified his legacy in Western art as one of the four founders of the Cowboy Artists of America. Thanks to his disciplined work ethic and succinct storytelling ability, Dye was a prolific painter, most adept at depicting family life in a humorous and true Americana theme, much like Norman Rockwell, one of his favorite illustrators. A gifted draftsman, Dye used sketches and drawings to rough out his paintings. 4 His process included a pencil thumbnail, a full-color oil sketch, and finally a canvas-size finished pencil drawing before his final painting. "Cartoons" were common among artists but never sold as finished works, with the exception of Dye, whose sketches became a collector's item. Dye prided himself on his intimate knowledge of the working cowboy, his understanding of the West, and his ability to portray these in his paintings with painstakingly accurate details on every figure. He also held his fellow artists to the same standard, notoriously pointing out technical mistakes in the depicted gear or horse.5 Dye's cowboy artwork is largely depicted in two distinct manners – one illustrating a solitary figure enveloped in quiet or reflective moments, and one fundamentally action-driven, showcasing the humor in the raucous shenanigans of a cowboy's daily life.6 First One in Town falls into the latter category. It is unique, however, in its depiction of humorous chaos and disruption stemming from an outside source, rather than the cowboys' own rowdy adventures. Dye reminisced that while the real cattle days, ended before he was born, he had a great time watching as Old Father Time pulled down the curtain. 7 First One in Town aptly captures these nostalgic sentiments. The physical upset of the automobile in cattle land is largely symbolic of the American cowboy's plight, as is the striking contrast between the movement and stillness. From the bucking horses and frantic dog, to the cowboys struggling to keep hold in mid-air, action engulfs nearly every part of the composition. The automobile's drivers, the source of the town's upheaval, are the sole figures stoically watching the commotion unfold around them. First One in Town features several of Dye trademark elements, most prominently a roan horse in the foreground. Dye had a particular affinity for roan horses, supposedly because these paintings sold the fastest. 8 Dye's artist's device—a 'CD' iron brand—is visible lower right, along with the Cowboy Artists of America designation, which Dye was most proud to display.Reflecting on his career, Dye astutely recognized his perspective on the West was never requested by art editors in New York because of his authenticity – they wanted a Hollywood variety of the West, not the truth he illustrated. "I guess I loved the West too much. I couldn't lie about a sweetheart."91 C. Dye, P.E.
