John Elliott Tullidge
(Weymouth, United Kingdom, 1836 - 1899, Salt Lake City, Utah)

John Elliott Tullidge, a native of Weymouth, England, was a pioneer Utah painter whose work attracted an important Denver patron as well as members of the powerful Walker family in Salt Lake City. Even though he had had only a brief apprenticeship in his teens with an English decorative painter (a factor preventing further homeland "formal art study except for meager training at Milready"), Tullidge was able to develop into a landscape painter in America, using a calm, but nicely brushy luminism in his works not unlike effects seen in the pictures of some secondary figures associated with this country's Hudson River School. Then, like Dan Weggeland and C.C.A. Christensen, he eventually capped his studio career by painting in various LDS temples (St. George, Logan, and Manti). Edward W. Tullidge, a brother of John Tullidge, was the most prominent nineteenth-century writer on Utah art and one of several leaders of the Godbeite movement in dissent from Mormonism beginning in the 1860s.
