John Cowan Templeton (1880-1958)
Lakeside Cabin #1
Watercolor on Paper
8 x 11 inches
Signed Lower Right
John Templeton was a sign painter by trade. It was that craft which led to employment with Inland Steel in Northwest Indiana. He continued to paint creative works and even taught art. He’s somewhat overshadowed in his output by Frank Dudley, known as the Painter of the Dunes. That must make Templeton, the Other Painter of the Dunes. Today’s pieces are simple watercolors depicting a couple of lakeside cottages. Fun works and they would love to stay together.
Appeared and sold in our Fifth Annual Curated Sale of Indiana Art auction, which took place in Indianapolis on 4/18/21.
