Bradley Walker Tomlin



Bradley Walker Tomlin

(b Syracuse, NY, 19 Aug 1899; d New York, 11 May 1953).
American painter. He studied sculpture modelling in the studio of Hugo Gari Wagner from 1913 and painting from 1917 to 1921 at Syracuse University. After graduation he moved to New York and began to work as a commercial illustrator, with many commissions from Condé Nast publications. Tomlin visited France for the first time in 1923 and spent a few months studying in Paris at both the Académie Colarossi and the Académie de la Grande Chaumière. He remained a freelance illustrator until 1929. In 1925 he spent the first of many summers in the emerging colony of Woodstock, NY. Early paintings, such as Young Girl (1925; Newark, NJ, Mus.) or the slightly later Self-portrait (1932; New York, Whitney), emotionally evocative yet sentimental, soon gave way to a more stylized format.
