Known primarily as a California artist, Dana Bartlett was born in Michigan and studied at the Art Students’ League in New York with William Merritt Chase and Charles Warren Eaton. He relocated to the West Coast, finally settling in Los Angeles in 1915. Bartlett became one of the foremost members of the California ‘Eucalyptus School’ of plein-aire artists, working in oil, watercolor, pastel and assorted graphic media. Bartlett’s southwestern work is rare and the hand-colored portrait of a Hopi man included here is a striking example of one of his very few figurative works.
