(1916-1989). Oil on cavas, 24"x36". Damrow is a self-taught artist, after working as a cowboy, forester and a sign painter; much work in Arizona and Wisconsin, banks and restaurants. Subjects are nostalgic scenes 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'x9' canvases collected by Arizona's largest art patron, bank president Walter Brimson.
