Biographical or historical data
Gerard Curtis Delano (1890-1972), born in Marion, Mass. His artistic talent was apparent at a young age and he attended the Swaine Free School of Design. In 1910, Delano became a pupil pf George Bridgeman at the Art Students League in New York City, N.Y. and later studied at the Grand Central School of Art with Dean Cornwell, Harvey Dunn and N.C. Wyeth. He became a successful commercial illustrator. In 1919, Delano visited Colo. and eventually homesteaded in Summit County. He continued to travel to back to New York City for assignments until 1929. Delano then worked on a series of illustrated articles for Western Story Magazine, spending many hours researching in Denver libraries. His success grew as a Western artist and in 1943, he was able to finance his first trip to the Arizona and the Navajo reservations. He painted prolifically, specializing in paintings of Western and Southwestern tribal and Pueblo Indians.
