This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Decatur, Illinois, Dan Lutz studied at the Chicago Art Institute*.  In 1931, he received a fellowship to paint in Europe. Then he earned a BFA degree from the University of Southern California and in the 1930s and 40s taught at the Chouinard Art Institute*.

In the 1930s, he developed with opaque watercolors, a bright abstract style that differed from many California artists.  He did many Social Realist* paintings of lower class life in Los Angeles and visual interptetations of African-American spirituals.

In the 1950s and 1960s, he lectured occasionally, while continuing to paint.Biographical information:
