Joseph William Dawley (American 1936 - 2008).

Oil on board portrait of an old man, signed LR "Dawley", size 9" x 11" + giltwood frame.
 This biography from the Archives of AskART:
“A graduate of Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, Joseph Dawley became well-known in the 1960s and 70s for his realistic character studies and landscapes. In 1975, he was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, and his style became much looser, more colorful, and impressionistic.

The following, submitted March 2005 from the daughter of the artist:
Although raised and educated in Texas, Joe Dawley moved to New Jersey in the early 1960's where he remained. He painted in the traditional Old Masters style until 1982, when the symptoms of Parkinson's - diagnosed in 1975 - necessitated brain surgery. One of his accolades during that period was being commissioned to paint the official portrait of Mother Seton for the canonization in 1976.
After the surgery and much recovery time, he found he had lost his fine motor skills needed to paint realism as he had. He taught himself impressionism and was very successful at it. He has appeared on all three major networks - ABC, NBC, and CBS - and was featured in "Life" magazine in June 1993. Today, after about 30 years of deterioration from the Parkinson's, Joe Dawley continues to paint in yet another style, much more abstract and definitely from the heart. He may not always be able to speak, remember names, or even walk, but he seems to always be able to paint.
 Dawley was invited by the White House to paint a painting for use as the official 1994 Christmas Card. Two paintings were created for this purpose and are both currently in the White House. Also in Washington, D.C., Joe's painting "Snowfall in the Park" is the 1995 Christmas Card for Very Special Arts, which is an international educational affiliate of The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts."

Biography by Vincent Price
“Robert Watson (1923 - 2004) was born in Martinez, California in a big house overlooking the bay, and with him was born the subject of all his paintings - the loneliness of man in the mysterious world. California provided this subject with a stage of vast space on which to grow and evolve.
It wasn't until after High School, odd jobs, a sojourn in the Army and study at Universities of California and Wisconsin that Watson's lonely man, mysterious world became concrete through reality of paint on canvas. This occurred between 1943 and 1947 when he went to New York and later spent eight weeks studying with Frederic Taubes in Wisconsin. Watson's career, a highly successful one, began with his first one-man show in 1947 at Gump's and in 1950 in the California Palace of the Legion of Honor, both in San Francisco.

He is widely travelled having worked in Europe and America, but he was continually drawn back to this country and to the West of Ireland in particular. He held his first one-man exhibition in Dublin. Since then he has been recording, in a personal way, the ever-changing moods and light of the West. “Aerach” is a word that could describe his work. There is a wonderful sense of space in these paintings, a tranquility where nothing is hurried. Liam moves effortlessly from the small detail to wide panoramas. In doing so, he shows us some conic images, but most of the images in this collection reflect his motto, “Within the ordinary lies the extraordinary”.  The artist himself says, “no Poet, no Painter can ever fully capture all that is contained in the landscape.  In fleeting moments when our pride takes a grip we feel we have it – we’ve got it, but then the landscape merely changes and invites us further in. The landscape surely is a reflection of the divine. It is eternal. As a humble Painter I can only stand in awe, in reverence before it and merely scratch at its surface.”

Oil on canvas "Virginia Landscape, 24" x 32" + original 8" wide Gilt frame, Signed and dated LL "Max Weyl 98".

Wikipedia Biography: He was born on December 1, 1837, in Muhlen-am-Neckar, a small town in the Baden-Wurtemberg region of southern Germany. His parents names were Veit Hirsch Weyl and Emma Miriam Goetz. In 1853 his family emigrated to Williamsport, Pennsylvania, where Weyl worked in watch and clock repair, a trade he had learned through an early apprenticeship. In 1857, he moved to Washington, D.C. and became a jeweler with a retail store on 7th Street NW in a building that still stands and currently is used as a Ruby Tuesday restaurant across from the Verizon Center. Weyl married Miriam Raff and had several children including Mathilda, Henry and Adolph. Weyl began to painthttp://www.capitalantiques.com/Paintings/html/FA093-Jean-De-Botton.html as a hobby and displayed some of his works in his shop window. Weyl also was active in the then-small Washington Jewish community.
In the 1870s, local businessman, Samuel H. Kauffman, publisher of the Evening Star newspaper, took noontime walks on 7th Street and observed Weyl's paintings on display in the shop window. Kauffman purchased some of Weyl's works and became his patron, financing a trip for Weyl to study art professionally in Europe.
In 1878, under Kauffman's patronage, Weyl undertook a year of study abroad, visiting studios and galleries in Munich, Paris, Vienna and Venice. After his return to Washington, he and a group of fellow artists formed the "Washington Landscape School", resulting in paintings "plein air" paintings of Washington pastoral scene.
Weyl came to be called the "American Daubigny" and his works became very popular among Washington art collectors. His work became part of collections including the White House where purchases were made by Mrs. Grover Cleveland and Mrs. Woodrow Wilson, Georgetown University, the Virginia Military Institute, Kiplinger Washington Editors, the Cosmos Club and many others.
On Weyl's 70th birthday in 1907, the Corcoran Gallery of Art held a retrospective exhibit of his work. A group of local citizens purchased and donated a work by him to the National Gallery of Art. In recognition and praise they stated: "From the standpoint of art you have contributed works of genius that will stand for all time: while your bearing as a man, citizen and friend has been of that modest and yet far-reaching character that wins the love and retains the esteem of those with whom you have come in contact."
Weyl died in 1914. His great-grandson, Christopher Wolf, has a large collection of Weyl's works and continues to live in Washington, DC as a fourth-generation Washingtonian. His grandson, Max Weyl II, was also a collector as are his great-granddaughter, Nancy Weyl Seamon and great-grandson, Kevin Weyl.

August Henry Nordhausen was born in Hoboken, New Jersey, in 1901, the
youngest child of Henry and Katherine Nordhausen who had emigrated from Germany in the late 1880s. After high school Nordhausen spent two years at the New York School of Fine Arts before venturing to Europe in 1922. In Europe he found a number of educational opportunities available to him, and for two and a half years he studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Art in Munich with Hugo Von Habermann and Hans Hofmann. Upon returning to the United States, Nordhausen persisted with his vocation in the arts through commercial work and teaching, never forgetting his own academic training. Throughout his career, he continually entered competitions at the National Academy of Design, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and won prizes in many juried exhibitions. After he served in the military during World War II, the GI Bill enabled Nordhausen to receive additional artistic training at the New School for Social Research in New York.  By the 1950s he was able to travel extensively due to increased sales of his paintings and the receipt of many portrait commissions. He traveled to Italy, Greece and Scandinavia before finding his way to Columbus,
Georgia. For Nordhausen, Georgia became an area where he received many portrait commissions. As a result, he established a studio in Columbus in 1960 and eventually settled in this community.

Fritz Kohlstädt  (translated biography from Kunsthaus Bühler gallery)
Fritz Kohlstädt has acquired the painting without the help of an academic education itself. The drawing he learned at the Stuttgart city graphic artist Walter Romberg, and then went from 1950-63 as a designer and engineer of Daimler-Benz, where he was continuing its own alongside the painting. In 1958 he became a founding member of Sindelfingen secession, which he chaired for several years with great dedication. 1963-68 he was a teaching contract for textile design at the after school for weaving in Sindelfingen. After that he was freelance. Kohlstädt, who described himself as "expressionist", has developed over the years with admirable consistency, a characteristic of work and expression. On numerous trips, he studied the landscape, which suited his nature: he preferred the harsh regions of the Norwegian fjords, Brittany and Normandy, Hungary or the Swabian Alb, but also in light of the South, on Lanzarote or Egypt are paintings were created. Here he gave the health-giving units in numerous sketches in oil crayon set, and the great works in watercolor and oil then formed on the basis of these drawings in the studio. He often combined elements of several important drawings to create a new, system-typical landscape, which he captivated with generous, energetic, yet controlled brush strokes on the canvas. It looked Kohlstädt the mood, the essence of the landscape, as it reveals itself to his eye and sense to come to the track in short, to discover the nature behind nature. Image objects are increasingly stripped of its natural color and physicality, reduced to its basic form, distorted, transformed into invaluable theme areas of color and symbols of themselves changed, recognizable as a landscape, yet at the same time an expression of the subjective perception of color and mood of the artist.

Fritz Kohlstädt  (translated biography from Kunsthaus Bühler gallery)
Fritz Kohlstädt has acquired the painting without the help of an academic education itself. The drawing he learned at the Stuttgart city graphic artist Walter Romberg, and then went from 1950-63 as a designer and engineer of Daimler-Benz, where he was continuing its own alongside the painting. In 1958 he became a founding member of Sindelfingen secession, which he chaired for several years with great dedication. 1963-68 he was a teaching contract for textile design at the after school for weaving in Sindelfingen. After that he was freelance. Kohlstädt, who described himself as "expressionist", has developed over the years with admirable consistency, a characteristic of work and expression. On numerous trips, he studied the landscape, which suited his nature: he preferred the harsh regions of the Norwegian fjords, Brittany and Normandy, Hungary or the Swabian Alb, but also in light of the South, on Lanzarote or Egypt are paintings were created. Here he gave the health-giving units in numerous sketches in oil crayon set, and the great works in watercolor and oil then formed on the basis of these drawings in the studio. He often combined elements of several important drawings to create a new, system-typical landscape, which he captivated with generous, energetic, yet controlled brush strokes on the canvas. It looked Kohlstädt the mood, the essence of the landscape, as it reveals itself to his eye and sense to come to the track in short, to discover the nature behind nature. Image objects are increasingly stripped of its natural color and physicality, reduced to its basic form, distorted, transformed into invaluable theme areas of color and symbols of themselves changed, recognizable as a landscape, yet at the same time an expression of the subjective perception of color and mood of the artist.

 This biography from the Archives of AskART:
“A graduate of Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, Joseph Dawley became well-known in the 1960s and 70s for his realistic character studies and landscapes. In 1975, he was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, and his style became much looser, more colorful, and impressionistic.

The following, submitted March 2005 from the daughter of the artist:
Although raised and educated in Texas, Joe Dawley moved to New Jersey in the early 1960's where he remained. He painted in the traditional Old Masters style until 1982, when the symptoms of Parkinson's - diagnosed in 1975 - necessitated brain surgery. One of his accolades during that period was being commissioned to paint the official portrait of Mother Seton for the canonization in 1976.
After the surgery and much recovery time, he found he had lost his fine motor skills needed to paint realism as he had. He taught himself impressionism and was very successful at it. He has appeared on all three major networks - ABC, NBC, and CBS - and was featured in "Life" magazine in June 1993. Today, after about 30 years of deterioration from the Parkinson's, Joe Dawley continues to paint in yet another style, much more abstract and definitely from the heart. He may not always be able to speak, remember names, or even walk, but he seems to always be able to paint.
 Dawley was invited by the White House to paint a painting for use as the official 1994 Christmas Card. Two paintings were created for this purpose and are both currently in the White House. Also in Washington, D.C., Joe's painting "Snowfall in the Park" is the 1995 Christmas Card for Very Special Arts, which is an international educational affiliate of The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts."

Biography by Vincent Price
“Robert Watson (1923 - 2004) was born in Martinez, California in a big house overlooking the bay, and with him was born the subject of all his paintings - the loneliness of man in the mysterious world. California provided this subject with a stage of vast space on which to grow and evolve.
It wasn't until after High School, odd jobs, a sojourn in the Army and study at Universities of California and Wisconsin that Watson's lonely man, mysterious world became concrete through reality of paint on canvas. This occurred between 1943 and 1947 when he went to New York and later spent eight weeks studying with Frederic Taubes in Wisconsin. Watson's career, a highly successful one, began with his first one-man show in 1947 at Gump's and in 1950 in the California Palace of the Legion of Honor, both in San Francisco.
