Donald Teague

     The most revered artist of all Carmel artists, Donald Teague, was one of the premier watercolorists and illustrators of the twentieth century. Teague was born in Brooklyn and in 1916 and 1917, studied under Bridgmand and DuMond at the famed Art Students League in New York. After serving in WWI he became a pupil of Norman Wilkinson in London and upon his return to New York continued his studies at the Art League under the tutelage of Dean Cornwell. Cornwell helped Teague begin his career as an illustrator in 1921. He was the primary illustrator at The Saturday Evening Post where he was to share an office with Norman Rockwell. When illustrating for Collier's he signed his work, Edwin Dawes.
     In the 1920's Teague spent several summers on a Colorado ranch. He moved to California in 1938 and specialized as a western illustrator until Collier's ceased publication in 1958. Upon finishing his career as an iluustrator, Teague devoted his time to painting.
     During his lifetime he won international recognition and numerous awards for his paintings, including five First Prizes from the National Academy of Western Art, both the Gold and Silver Medal Honors from the American Watercolor Society, the S.F.B. Morse Gold Medal from the National Academy of Western Art and two Gold Medals from the Cowboys Artists of America. His work has been exhibited in major museum collections throughout the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Royal Watercolor Society, the Tokyo Museum, the Peking National Museum, the Brooklyn Museum, the Museum of Watercolor in Mexico City, Chicago's Art Institute, the Sydney Museum in Australia, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and the National Cowboy Hall of Fame.
