(1916-1989) Oil on canvas; well framed 24 1/2" x 31". Damrow is self-taught as an artist, worked as a cowboy, forester and sign painter. Much work in Arizona and Wisconsin banks and restaurants, subjects are nostalgic of cowboys, Indians and buffalo. Damrow drifted between acclaim and obscurity and had associations and friendships with many notable westerners, including Olaf Wieghorts, Barry Goldwater, Peter McDonald, and Bill McGee. His paintings are held in private collections, municipal buildings, and corporate collections. Noteworthy are two large 6’ x 9’ canvases collected by Arizona’s largest art patron, bank president Walter Brimson. Pictured on the cover of his book "Charles Albert Damrow 1916-1989) The American Cowboy Artist" by his daughter Patricia Damrow Register. The photo on the cover, and inside the book with a quote "He Took McGee's Comment to Heart. He Said About To Curate an Action Packed Trail of a Buffalo Hunt Which Required Over Six Months of Work and Research." This painting served as a turning point in Charley's carreer.
