Biography (courtesy Askart: The Artists' Bluebook and The New Georgia Encyclopedia): Lamar Dodd is known for modernist-leaning landscape, genre, and still life painter, and as an educator. He had a career centered in his home state of Georgia, although his education at the Art Students League in New York City, and some of his painting assignments, such as being an official artist for the National Aerospace Program, took him far beyond his home town of Athens. Dodd was head of the art department at The University of Georgia (UGA) from 1938 until 1973, when he stepped down. He remained chair of the Division of Fine Arts until he retired in 1972. In 1963 a new art building was dedicated on UGA's north campus. The Department of Art was renamed the Lamar Dodd School of Art in a dedication ceremony in 1996, just months before Dodd's death later that year. CONDITION: 1st item: Foxing spots on lower half of paper, errant marks and tears, slightly crumpled. 2nd item: Overall excellent condition.
