This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Gaylord Flory (1919-1982)

A painter of landscapes, still lives, figures and portraits, he also drew hundreds of sketches and caricatures. Flory painted in watercolor, casein, acrylic, and oil.

Born in Michigan, Gaylord Flory began his career as a painter at the age of twenty, when he enrolled in the Meinzinger Art School in Detroit.  His studies were interrupted by World War II, during which he saw action in New Guinea.  When not consumed by his responsibilities as a field artillery officer, he found respite in sketching the scenes of war.  

After his recovery from war wounds, he went on to further study at the Art Students League and the Hans Hoffmann School of Art (New York City), the Academie Grand Chaumiere (Paris), the Institute D'Arte (Florence), and the Brooklyn Museum of Art School.

Except for a year spent in Europe, where he was both studying and honeymooning  he resided throughout his adult life in New York.  He was an active participant in the New York art scene and for many summers joined the colony of painters on Monhegan Island in Maine.  When his wife died at age thirty-six, he added teaching to painting.  Some years later, with his second wife and their son, he settled into the productive middle years, in which painting, teaching. and traveling extensively combined to enrich his canvases.

Gaylord Flory exhibited widely during his more than forty years as a professional artist.  During his lifetime, he had more than a dozen one-man shows in the New York area, including one at the Brooklyn Museum. His paintings have been shown in museums throughout the country--the National Gallery, the Modern Museum of Art, the Chicago Art Institute, the Detroit Art Institute, the Columbus Gallery of Art, the Pennsylvania Academy, the Birmingham Art Museum.
