Biography of Harvey Dunn
Scope and Contents Note
Description of the files


Son of South Dakota homesteaders Tom and Bersha Dunn, Harvey Dunn grew up with a plow rather than a paintbrush in his hand. Although the daylight hours after school were spent working on the farm, Dunn spent evenings sketching with him mother. In 1901, he enrolled in the South Dakota Agricultural College as a preparatory student. There, he met Ada B. Caldwell, an art teacher, who inspired and challenged Dunn to pursue artistic training; she suggested that Dunn attend the Chicago Art Institute. Dunn left for Chicago in 1902. He never lived in South Dakota again, although he visited frequently; however, it would remain a continual inspiration and recurring subject for his art. Dunn’s two years at the Art Institute were uneventful, yet the experience and exposure were invaluable. Dunn met Howard Pyle when he lectured at the Chicago Art Institute in the spring of 1904. Soon after that meeting, Dunn moved to Wilmington to study under Pyle. By 1906, Pyle encouraged him to set up his own studio. Thus, the young artist began his fruitful career as an illustrator. Jobs came quickly to Dunn, and soon he was working for ScribnersHarper’s MonthlySaturday Evening Post, and many others. His punctuality and tenacity made him a favorite among magazine editors.

Dunn married Tulla Krebs in 1908 and continued to live in Wilmington until 1914, when he moved to Leonia, New Jersey, to be closer to New York. The next year, Dunn and Charles Shepard Chapman started the Leonia School of Illustration. Howard Pyle, the teacher, had influenced Dunn as much as Pyle, the illustrator. Dunn tried to fashion his school into a community-based art school like Pyle’s. However, because of Chapman’s and Dunn’s different approaches to teaching art, the Leonia school did not last long. Nonetheless, Dunn taught in various institutions and from his own studio for the greater part of his life.

The year 1918 found Dunn traveling as a war artist with the American Expeditionary Forces in France. The war had a profound effect on him, and readjustment to civilian life came slowly. During his restless first year back from the war, Dunn moved his family to Tenafly, New Jersey, in an effort to live even closer to New York than before. Dunn’s illustrations continued at a steady pace. He also slowly increased his output of paintings related to his childhood on the northern plains. By 1927, he was making yearly trips to South Dakota and the West. These trips always had a beneficial effect on the artist, and upon his return Dunn attacked his work with new vigor. He continued to teach, not only in his own studio but also at the Grand Central School of Art in New York and occasionally at the Art Students League. After 1939, Dunn’s career as an illustrator slowed, and he devoted more time to easel painting. He was a member to the Society of Illustrators and served as its president in 1948-1949.

Dunn’s early style showed the influence of Howard Pyle in its insistence on capturing a dramatic moment. He eventually came to be known for his own unique, bold style which depended on a vigorous and painterly approach to color. Whether Dunn was illustrating an adventure story for the Saturday Evening Post, depicting a battle attack from World War I, or recalling his youth plowing a buffalo trace, the artist injected a life-like quality into his works that made the subject come alive for the viewer.
