Biography Leslie Skelton
Leslie James Skelton (1848 - 1929)
A prominent eastern Canadian and western American painter, illustrator, and educator, Leslie James Skelton was born in Montréal, Quebec and died in Colorado Springs, Colorado which, for health reasons, had been his home since 1892.
His primary mediums were oil on board and oil on canvas. Much of his fame was derived from three-color, half-tone process postcards which reproduced about 16 of his paintings. They were sold by the millions in the early 20th century. Pike's Peak was perhaps his most famous subject; however, his subjects also included other mountain views, landscapes, shorelines, lakes, rivers, boats and still life. His style was Realism*. AskART has some good illustrations of it. (
