Biography   Wood Woolsey


Born and raised in Danville, Illinois, he was a recognized painter of Southwest portraits and landscapes with figures.

He moved with his family to Indianapolis in 1921 where he worked as a commercial artist and studied at the John Herron Art Institute. In 1928, he followed his artist brother Carl Woolsey to Taos, New Mexico, and gained quick attention for his paintings.

The brothers exhibited in the Hoosier Salon and National Academy, and their father was their business manager. He formed strong friendships in the Taos community including with his frequent model Jim Marabel. In 1934, he returned east living in Indianapolis and Pennsylvania, and he died in Texas.   ...  Displaying 685 of 4246 characters.
