This lot features an oil on board painting by American artist James Everett Stuart (1852 - 1941). Born in Bangor, Maine, James Everett Stuart became known for his panoramic landscapes throughout North America, but especially of the American West. His parents took him to California at the age of eight, and the family settled in San Francisco where he attended the public schools and studied art with Virgil Williams, Raymond Yelland, Thomas Hill, and William Keith at the San Francisco School of Design. In 1885, Stuart first went to Yellowstone where he camped for several weeks, supplied himself with fish for food, climbed steep cliffs including Electric Peak, and filled his sketchbook for studio paintings. The following summer, Stuart returned, having negotiated a free pass from the Northern Pacific Railroad in exchange for paintings. He spent the next several summers in Yellowstone, selling paintings from his tent. Throughout his career, Stuart was a member in several organizations including the Bohemian Club, the Society of Independent Artists, the National Art Club, the American Artists Professional League, and the San Francisco Art Association. In 1912, he opened a studio in Union Square, San Francisco, where he resided until his death in 1941. Signed and dated in the side left register. This piece comes from the Dickerson Estate of Knoxville, TN. See Photos for Details. Shipping Available.
