Arthur Fitzsimmons (1909 - 1992)  Artworks >>

From a fairly prominent St. Louis family, Fitzsimmons was sent west in his early teens because of meningitis. He spent three years in Arizona, and by the time he returned, he was in better health and knew he wanted to paint the west for a living. He studied art at Washington University in St. Louis, and later taught art at St. Louis University. He became a successful commercial artist and illustrator, but he wasn't happy. He moved his family to a farm near Cedar Hill, Missouri in the 1950s "to sink or swim on what I wanted to do"( 1971 article). Galleries who exhibited his work mentioned in these articles are The Cradle in Morrison, CO; and the Four Seasons West Gallery, Kurt Borne Gallery, and Hog Hollow Gallery in the St. Louis area.
