Biography from Anthony's Fine Art:
This prominent Salt Lake City painter and teacher was born in Richfield, Utah.  He studied with John F. Carlson (1904), at the University of Utah (1905), at Brigham Young University (1907-8) under Elbert H. Eastmond, at the Art Students League under William Dufner and the Pratt Institute in New York (1908-10), at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C. (1916-18), and at the Broadmore Art Academy in Colorado Springs (1927).

He taught at BYU (1907-8), at Lewis Junior High in Ogden (1920-24), at Jordan Junior (1925-27), and at West High School (1928-43).  More extensively and academically trained than his wife, painter Rose Howard Salisbury, he was the winner of a great many prizes at home, especially at the State Fair and in Institute annuals.

A Cornelius Salisbury “specialty” was “the painting of winter and pioneer Utah homes”; he painted for the Old Salt Lake Theatre and performed as an actor there as well.  After the theatre was torn down in 1928, Salisbury’s Curtain Time—Salt Lake Theatre, with its mixed expression of the place’s warmth of life set against a cold winter night of long ago, best stated the memory of a lost and irreplaceable Utah landmark and visual arts institution.  The painting was purchased by the Springville Gallery in 1947, and another revision is featured at Pioneer Memorial Theatre.
