Dana Bartlett was born in Ionia, MI on Nov.19, 1882. After studying at the ASL in NYC under Wm M. Chase and Charles Warren Eaton, Bartlett had a studio for a few years in Boston. Dana Bartlett then moved to Portland, OR where he painted billboards for the Foster-Kleiser Company. About 1915 he briefly had a studio in San Francisco before making his final move to Los Angeles. Dana Bartlett furthered his art training in Paris (1924) and held a successful solo show at the LACMA in 1927. The following year he opened an art gallery in Los Angeles where he exhibited not only his paintings but those of other local artists. Dana Bartlett was an important member of the southern California art community for over 40 years and a teacher at Chouinard School of Art. He was president of the California Art Club in 1922 and founder and first president of the California Watercolor Society. Dana Bartlett died in Los Angeles on July 3, 1957. The decorative style of his plein air landscapes exemplifies the "Eucalyptus School."
