Description

It is a rare privilege to be able to offer a painting by an artist whose works rarely appear for sale because people do not want to let them go.

 

About the Artist (1921-1972)  Many of us are familiar with DesJarlait's commercial art creations without realizing it.  Mr. DesJarlait was responsible for the Hamm's Blue Ribbon Beer bear as well as the Land O'Lakes butter maiden.  Likely his involvement with animation while working for Disney Studios helped to shape his ability to create lovable characters.  

Often his paintings depict endearing individuals carrying out activities aligned with his culture, that of the Red Lake Objiwe.  One iconic activity DesJarlait is known for depicting is wild rice harvesting, utilizing birch bark containers.

Another influence easily recognized was his work teaching art among Japanese Americans.  This experience lent another aesthetic evident in each painting's composition.  One does not experience any extraneous elements in his paintings.  His paintings present balanced, colorful snapshots of life as he experienced it, amounting to visual sharing and informing.
