Donald Teague


Donald Teague


Also known as Teague, Donald Edwin Dawes

Nationality: American

Birth Place: Brooklyn (Delaware county, New York state, United States)

Donald Teague was born in Brooklyn and attended the Art Students League of New York, where he studied under Dean Cornwell. Teague began his career as an illustrator in 1921 due in part to Cornwell's encouragement and soon became the primary illustrator for The Saturday Evening Post. During this time, he also did illustrations for Collier's, a rival publication, but signed that work "Edwin Dawes" to avoid any professional conflict of interest. As a young man, Teague had spent several summers in Colorado, and in 1938 he moved out West permanently. Despite distancing himself from the New York art market, the demand for his work followed him to California. When Collier's ceased publication in 1958, Teague switched gears after more than thirty-five years as an illustrator and focused almost exclusively on painting. Throughout his career, Teague has been recognized with numerous awards from the National Academy of Western Art (five First Prizes, Morse Gold Medal), the American Watercolor Society (Gold and Silver Medals), and the Cowboy Artists of America (two Gold Medals). He was elected to the National Academy of Design in 1948 and was a founding member of the National Academy of Western Art.
