Dewey Albinson (1898-1971)

Dewey Albinson was the son of Swedish immigrants.  He began painting at the age of fifteen and studied at the Minneapolis School of Art (now the Minneapolis College of Art and Design), the Art Students League in New York, and in France and Italy.  

 

Albinson seemed to favor Minnesota in his works, as he is most noted for his scenes of the Iron Range and the North Shore of Lake Superior.  He once wrote, “the Catskills are beautiful…but I found the rugged peace and solitude of the Minnesota hills to be more charming.” 

 

Albinson was also involved in the arts of Minnesota.  He was Director of the St. Paul School of Art (now the Minnesota Museum of American Art) from 1926-29 and a member of the Public Works of Art Project in 1933.  He was state director of the Educational Division for the Works Progress Administration Art Center from 1935-1937 and painted murals for the post offices of Cloquet, Minnesota and Marquette, Michigan.  

 

After the WPA, he became president of the Minnesota Art Association from 1937-1938.   Albinson spent his final years in Mexico, where he painted a series of canvases based on Miguel Cervantes’s story of DON QUIXOTE.   Albinson’s typescript memoirs are in the Minnesota Historical Society library.

Dewey Albinson is featured, along with three other renowned Minnesota artists (Cameron Booth, Clement Haupers and Elof Wedin), in a book entitled "Minnesota Modern - Four Artists of the Twentieth Century."  This beautiful book, published by Afton Press, is available for purchase at Gallery 5004.
