Cornelius Salisbury

American 1882 - 1970

Cornelius Salisbury studied with some of the most influential teachers of his day, including William Dufner at the Art Students League, in New York City, and instructors at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C., and at the Broadmoor Art Academy in Colorado Springs. This scene reflects the representational, Barbizon style he employed to celebrate the mostly rural Utah landscape of the early 20th century.
