Manierre Dawson

The Struggle 1912

Manierre Dawson (December 22, 1887, Chicago, Illinois- August 15, 1969, Sarasota, Florida) was a painter and sculptor born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, but lived most of his life in Michigan. A precocious and ceaseless experimenter, Dawson independently developed stylistic and material innovations that rivaled his most progressive contemporaries (from wikipedia).
