Augustus Dunbier, one of the Midwest's best-known artists in the early to mid-twentieth century, was the first Nebraska-born painter to earn his living solely from his art. Lonnie Pierson Dunbier  and Marcia Kmack detail the life story of this colorist and impressionist painter, from his early artistic development to his travels in search of vivid landscapes. Dunbier's assertive, contrasting colors and bold brushwork captured the intangible features of season, temperature, and weather. Dunbier frequently traveled across North America, painting the mountains of Montana and Colorado, the coasts and harbors of Massachusetts, Maine, Oregon, and Alaska, and the deserts of New Mexico and Arizona.
Yet the greater part of his impressionist landscapes feature Nebraska's hills and trees, lakes and rivers, farms and cities. His paintings are in numerous collections and museums including the Joslyn Art Museum, Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery, and the Museum of Nebraska Art.
