Dedrick Brandes Stuber (1878-1954)

Dedrick Brandes Stuber (1878-1954)

Landscape painter Dedrick Brandes Stuber was born in New York City in 1878 and studied with Julian Onderdonk and Clinton Peters at the Art Students League. He found inspiration in the scenery of Long Island and nearby Westchester County, and exhibited with the National Academy in 1911 and 1912. Although he never traveled abroad for further study, young Stuber was influenced by the Barbizon painters Charles Francois Daubigny (1817-1878) and Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1796-1875), whose earthy palette and attention to atmosphere would manifest in Stuber’s own work.

By 1920, Stuber had relocated to Los Angeles and joined a number of local arts organizations, including the Laguna Beach Art Association, the Glendale Art Association and the Painters and Sculptors of Los Angeles. He was drawn to the rural hills and valleys of the California landscape, showing a particular interest in the atmospheric effects of late evening and early morning, and also painted marines and city views. His work was represented by Wilshire Galleries in Los Angeles, and an example of his plein air painting can be found in the collection of the Smithsonian’s American Art Museum.
