William C. Palmer (Jan 20, 1906 – 1987: The Last Snow, 1956 -oil
on canvas  (Smithsonian)

“Palmer took classes with Boardman Robinson and Kenneth Hayes
Miller at the Art Students League and in the 1920s studied fresco at the École
des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Much of Palmer’s work during the late 1930s was devoted
to the various government art programs; he won a coveted commission to paint
murals for the Post Office Department building in Washington, D.C., and was
later appointed supervisor of the WPA’s mural division in New York City. From
1941 until his retirement in 1973, he served as director of the art school at
Munson-Williams -Proctor Institute in Utica. Palmer was a painter of the
American Scene who portrayed the rolling plains and expansive skies of his
native Iowa during the 1930s and 1940s. In the 1950s he began exploring the
moods, atmosphere, and light of New York’s rural landscape, which he interpreted
through abstract planes and closely graded colors.” – Virginia M. Mecklenburg.
