Dale Nichols: Seeing the Light

2021-03-18T17:20:40-04:00

What is most interesting about Nichols' work is the way he himself executed and perceived it. Nichols was born on a farm in David City, Nebraska in 1904. He did chores, walked two miles to school and, eventually left the rural environment for Chicago to pursue a career in art. He became a very successful illustrator, who was able to create both sophisticated graphics and comforting landscapes.

The wistful paintings of Dale Nichols belie the unique story of the artist himself. He is considered a Regionalist artist. His paintings reflect his nostalgia for the red barn of his  childhood home in Nebraska, although he was also able to evoke the same gentle feelings for Arizona, Alaska, Guatemala  and the many other places to which he traveled.
