Elliott Daingerfield (1859-1932)

Daingerfield, a Virginia native who was raised in Fayetteville, North Carolina, is considered a major Southern artist. His paintings merge Barbizon, Tonalist, Impressionist and Symbolist tendencies. During his studies in New York City, he worked with such artists as George Inness, Kenyon Cox and Walter Satterlee. In 1886 he bought a summer home in Blowing Rock and painted many scenes of that area. In 1910 Daingerfield was one of five American artists, including Thomas Moran, commissioned by the Santa Fe Railroad to depict the Grand Canyon. One of his best-known works is titled "Genius of the Canyon."
