Gerald Cassidy Cui Bono? Poster

A poster of "Cui Bono?" by New Mexico artist, Gerald Cassidy. Measures 24" H x 18" W.

Born in Kentucky, Gerald Cassidy (1879-1934) was raised in Cincinnati in a large family strongly influenced by the arts. Cassidy received his first training at the Institute of Mechanical Arts, and continued his studies at the Art Students League in New York. Cassidy moved to Denver, finding it the perfect location to pursue parallel careers in commercial illustration and easel painting. Cassidy soon discovered his life's inspiration in the history, landscape and cultures of the West. By 1912 he and his wife, noted author Ina Sizer Cassidy, settled in Santa Fe, becoming members of its beginning arts colony.

Cassidy is known for the flowing brushwork, distinctive compositions and clear, luminous colors of his paintings. He frequently sketched at the pueblos of the region, and his ability to capture both the action and spirit of his subjects led to many important mural and portrait commissions throughout the United States. The artist's untimely death in 1934 tragically shortened a brilliant career. His graceful compositions of the Southwest are a timeless legacy.
