|Dale Nichols- John Comes Home for Christmas- 1937- oil on canvas|
Dale Nichols, though much less well known than the other "Big Three" Regionalist artists, Grant Wood, John Stuart Curry and Thomas Hart Benton, he is no less worthy of recognition. I had previously only known his work from a single postcard (top image) that I purchased at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art.
|While the Sun Shines-1936, 33" x 43" oil on canvas|
Dale Nichols could arguably be considered the fourth significant name included in any discussion of Regionalist American art. A native son of David City, Nebraska where he was born in July 13, 1904, Nichols studied briefly at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts before forging a successful career in illustration.
