Cady Wells

(1904 - 1954)
Originally from Massachusetts, Cady Wells relocated to New Mexico in 1931 in order to study with Andrew Dasburg, who instructed Wells in watercolor technique. Wells was a student at the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard in the early 1930s. In 1935 he went to Japan specifically to study Japanese brush techniques.

Wells' paintings move fluidly between landscape, portraiture, and abstraction. A master of the water-medium, he drew great inspiration from the vast New Mexico land and culture, where Wells had an estate for most of his life.
