THIS PAINITNG IS A RARE LONDON SCENE OF THE CENOTAPH WAR MEMORIAL LOCATED IN WHITEHAL EXECUTED BY JOSEPH DAWLEY, CA. 1990

 

JOSEPH DAWLEY IS A VERY WONDERFUL IMPRESSIONIST ARTIST THAT HAS BEEN NICKNAMED THE RENOIR OF THE 90s.  DAWLEY'S STORY IS INSPIRING BUT THE BEAUTY OF THIS ART PIECE IS IMPRESSIVE JUST ON ITS OWN MERIT.  HAVING ENJOYED THIS PIECE ON MY OWN WALL, I AM GRATEFUL HE CONTINUED HIS PAINTING AND THE SHIFT TO THIS STYLE HAS CREATED WORK THAT I THINK SURPASSES HIS PORTRAIT WORK BY LEAPS AND BOUNDS THOUGH HOPE NOT TO OFFEND HIS PORTRAIT ENTHUSIASTS.

 

THIS WORK SHOWS DAWLEY'S GREAT SENSE OF COLORS AND BRUSH STROKES IN AS GOOD A STYLE AS I HAVE SEEN COMPARED TO HIS OTHER WORKS.  CLEARLY ONE OF HIS BEST PIECES AND CAN BE THE CENTERPIECE OF YOUR DAWLEY COLLECTION (OR ANY ARTWORK COLLECTION FOR THAT MATTER.)

 

 

DIMENSIONS: 24" X 36"

CONDIITION:  EXCELLENT

THIS PIECE WAS PURCHASED THROUGH THE CALVERT GALLERY OF WASHINGTON, DC AND THE APPROPRIATE GALLERY LABEL IS AFFIXED TO THE BACK DUST COVER ALONG WITH WHITE ALL RIGHTS RESERVED BY THE ARTIST COPYRIGHT.  THE CANVAS AND STRETHER ARE BRANDED WITH JOSEPH DAWLEY COPYRIGHT INK STAMP.

 

 

 

Biography

Born in Nashville, Arkansas in 1936, Joseph Dawley graduated from Southern Methodist University in 1959 and enjoyed an award-winning career as a realistic "Renaissance Style" artist throughout the 20th Century. During this period, Mr. Dawley was commissioned by the Vatican to paint the official portrait of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, which was unveiled at the canonization ceremony in St. Peter's Basilica.

 

In 1977, Dawley opened his own gallery: The Joseph Dawley Gallery in Cranford, New Jersey. Five full-color books have been published about his art by Watson-Guptill Publications, New York City, and Pittman Publishing & Sons, Ltd., London, the latest having been published in 1987 and entitled: Seeing and Painting the Colors of Nature.

 

The story of Dawley's style change from Traditionalism (Realism) to Impressionism, caused by Parkinson's disease, was aired on April 18, 1989, on the Tom Brokaw Nightly News Program, was featured in the Sunday New York Times on August 2, 1992, and then again on EyeWitness News on August 10, that same year.

 

Also in September 1993 an inspirational piece about Dawley and his artwork was aired on CBS This Morning. An exhibition of Dawley's art was sponsored that fall by DuPont for the World Conference of Neurology held in Vancouver, BC. In 1995 the Calvert Gallery of Washington D.C. hosts its 15th Dawley exhibition.. His work has been handled for a number of years through The Calvert Gallery, Washington, DC, and through The Artful Deposit in Allentown, NJ, as well.

 

The disease sidelined Joseph, rather than admit artistic defeat, out of adversity emerged sheer genius! Though no longer able to paint, Joseph Dawley's impressive use of blurred line with soft tones, cultivated in order to create impressionistic works in place of his previous "Realism," have earned him the title of "Renoir of the 90's."
 

In 1993, Dawley was one of several artists profiled in Jean Kennedy Smith and George Plimpton's Chronicles of Courage and an article devoted exclusively to Dawley appeared in the June issue of Life Magazine He also had the honor of having his work displayed in the American Embassy in Dublin.
 

Dawley was commissioned to paint the official portraits of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton which were unveiled at the Vatican during her Canonization ceremonies, and were later displayed at Saint Patrick's Cathedral in New York City. He is represented in the collections of Notre Dame University, the Mayo Clinic, Windsor and Newton, and many other prestigious collections. He has been a featured guest on television shows and his work has appeared on the covers of publications including Down East magazine and the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

 

Dawley was invited by the White House to create a painting for use as the official 1994 Christmas Card. Two paintings were created for this purpose and are both currently in the White House. Also in Washington, D.C., Joe's painting "Snowfall in the Park" is the 1995 Christmas Card for Very Special Arts, which is an international educational affiliate of The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
