Dana Bartlett (1882-1957)
Known as one of the preeminent “Eucalyptus School” painters of early California, Dana Bartlett was born in Iona, Michigan, in 1882. His first formal art studies were in New York with William M. Chase, and Charles W. Eaton. Bartlett briefly had a studio in Boston before heading to Portland, Oregon, to work as a commercial artist with Foster and Kleiser.
Arriving in Los Angeles in 1915, Bartlett devoted his attentions to landscape painting, and the following year enjoyed his first show in that city. In 1921, Bartlett showed in the inaugural exhibition of the California Watercolor Society, an organization he would later head. Following a trip to Europe in 1924 for further study in Paris, he had a solo exhibition in 1927 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and soon after opened a gallery to exhibit his works as well as those of other artists. Dana Bartlett remained influential in the Los Angeles art scene as a mentor for many, and for his teaching at the Chouinard Art Institute.
