Back to the Donald Teague selections
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.
