Summary

Celebrating the exhibits of the Utah Museum of Fine Arts and the Church History Museum, LeConte Stewart Masterworks is the most comprehensive monograph highlighting the artist's 75-year career. This volume will establish Stewart in the national conversation on Regionalist and American scene art. LeConte Stewart (1891-1990) spent much of his early life in the shadows of the iconic natural splendors of southern Utah. But it was smalltown life, notably in Kaysville and the farms and urban landscapes in Davis County, that captured his imagination. Stewart created images of Utah and the West, once epic and intimate, and though he studied with a number of important American artists, he internalized the technique and philosophy of John Carlson. He later passed this on to his students while he was chair of the Art Department at the University of Utah. Stewart was highly regarded by the art community and cultivated enduring friendships with some of the greats of the time, including Maynard Dixon. Wallace Stegner likened Stewart's Depression Era work to that of Edward Hopper, who LeConte acknowledged as an important influence.
