Carlos John Anderson

(Midvale, Utah, 1904 - 1978, Salt Lake City, Utah)

Carlos John Andreson (Anderson), of Midvale and Salt Lake City, was a painter, illustrator, and WPA artist. He married Lois Head (q.v.) about 1937, but the two later divorced. Andreson studied at the University of Utah (ca.1924-27), the Art Students League in New York City (1930-32), and the Ecole de Beaux-Arts and Academy Julian in Paris (1932-33). In the early 1930's, Andreson received a commission to record early life in Utah in twenty-four sketches. These excellent renderings are primarily of historical buildings and are all still owned by the State of Utah in what is known as the WPA Collection. After this Utah work, the artist moved to New York City and painted in a stylized form of realism. It was during this time that he became known as Carlos Andreson. He then moved to California in the 1940's and became associated with the San Francisco Civic Center and, later on, drew illustrations for the Oakland Army Base. He died in Salt Lake City.
