This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born on a tobacco farm in Dane County, Wisconsin, Chet La More grew up in Madison and briefly attended the Layton School of Art followed by instruction in Madison by Arthur Colt, a student of Charles Hawthorn.  He then established a studio in Madison, doing figure and portrait painting, and increasingly realized how isolated he was from much of what was going on with American art, especially contemporary movements.  Unable to support himself with his painting, he took 'odd' jobs in a department store and taught an evening class in vocational art.  He also had his first one-person show, held at the student Union of the University of Wisconsin.

Then in the 1930s, on his way to New York, he lived briefly in Baltimore where he did some teaching, catalogued paintings for the state hosue,. and stayed with friends.  He also met his wife there.
