Arthur Dove

Arthur Dove

Arthur Garfield Dove,  born on this date in 1880,  was an American artist.

Born into a wealthy family in New York, Dove graduated from Cornell University in 1903 and went on to become a commercial illustrator for Harper’s Magazine and The Saturday Evening Post.

In his early career, despite support from eminent members of the art community, Dove often had to work within farming and fishing jobs to support himself- as have so many would-be artists.

Dove was known for working in a variety of formats and media, often combining them in new ways.
