Anton Dahl

Biography from the Archives of askART

The following, submitted June 2005, is from Donna Hartman.

"I have owned two of Mr. Dahl's paintings for over forty years. According to the gallery label on the back, he taught at the Los Angeles Art Institute from 1948 to at least 1955. He was still teaching there when the painting was sold in 1955, so may have been there longer. It gives his address on Mt. Washington, Highland Park, CA (a part of L.A.).

The biography also mentions that he taught at the Detroit Art Museum School where he met his wife, but no date given for that."
According to Edan Hughes, "Artists of California, 1786-1940, Anton Dahl was born in Sweden and moved to northern California in the 1930s. He was a veteran of World Wars I and II and died on June 15, 1967 in the Veteran's Administration Hospital in Palo Alto.
