This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Delos Palmer was a prolific portraitist in Stamford’s art world between 1924, and his death in 1960. HE was born in New York City and studied at the Art Students League where he studied with American artists George Bellows and William Merritt Chase.

After World War I Palmer set up his studio in Manhattan and developed a steady clientele among prominent members of New York Society. He sometimes held as many as six different subject sittings a day.

Following his marriage to Helen Smith Romme, they moved to Stamford in 1924. His prosperity continued until the collapse of Wall Street suddenly changed everything. He was fortunate to find a position as a commercial illustrator for Curtis Publishing Company and Liberty Publishing, to support his family.

In 1935 the nationally funded WPA Federal Arts Project began in Connecticut. The goal was to put artists to work. Palmer produced eight works of art between January – December 1936. His two murals Boys Playing Baseball and Girls Playing Field Hockey hang in the entry of this building along with the doorway mural, showing a boy and girl reading. Be sure to see these before leaving.

By the late 1930s Palmer returned to portraiture. Older viewers will probably recall his studio at Roxbury Corners where he promoted his work flamboyantly – hanging paintings outdoors on the building, porch and lawn to attract buyers and draw more students.

His painting, Justice, is in the Probate Court in the Old Town Hall.
