34: JOHN THOMAS NOLF (1872-1950) OIL ON MASONITE

John Thomas Nolf (1872-1950)
(Second quarter of the 20th Century.)
John Thomas Nolf, short-term resident of Joplin, Missouri, lived a colorful life. Winnings from a poker game when he was around 20 years old enabled him to move to Chicago where he attend the Chicago Art Institute, launching his career as an artist, illustrator and teacher. He is most associated with the quaint Illinois village of Grand Detour, home of the Grand Detour Artist's Colony where he described himself as mayor - and another described him as 'Will Rodgers without the chewing gum and lariat.' Grand Detour citizens and Grand Detour happenings were the artist's favored inspiration for his paintings.
