Biography  
Carl E. Woolsey


Born and raised in Danville, Illinois, he moved to Indianapolis in 1921 and then lived briefly in Long Beach, California. In Indianapolis he saw an exhibition of Taos, New Mexico painting by Walter Ufer. From 1927 to 1934, he lived in Taos, as did his brothers, including artist, Wood, and parents. The father successfully promoted his sons' paintings, and they won awards in New York and Indiana, including for Carl the Hallgarten Prize in 1931 from the National Academy. Carl worked with Ufer, using his studio and also worked for the WPA. Economics took the family back to Indianapolis. He also lived in Connecticut and Pennsylvania.
