Orson Dewsnup Campbell

(Fillmore, Utah, 1876 - 1933, Pleasant View, Utah)

Orson D. (Dewsnup) "O. D." of Provo was destined to pursue a career wholly within the context of the traditional professional artist/teacher's life. Born in the nation's centennial year in Fillmore, Utah, he took art training in the East before settling in Utah and Idaho to teach at Provo High School and briefly at Brigham Young University. In 1908, Campbell spent a year in New York, painting under F. A. Bridgman, J. Walter Taylor, Frank Vincent Du Mond, and Kenyon Cox at the Art Students League before returning to Provo to teach again at BYU. He developed a sometimes subtle tonalist approach to landscape and cityscape early and probably did his best work during his years at BYU. Leaving there in 1915, he worked as an art instructor in Idaho at Ricks College until 1918 and in St. George at Dixie College for another two years. Campbell returned to Provo in 1920 as art supervisor for the Provo school system, and lived there until his death.
