After studying at the Art Students League in New York City under William Merritt Chase and Charles Warren Eaton, he had a studio for a few years in Boston. He then moved to Portland, Oregon, where he painted billboards for the Foster-Kleiser Company. About 1915, Dana Bartlett briefly had a studio in San Francisco before making his final move to Los Angeles. He furthered his art training in Paris (1924) and held a successful solo show at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 1927. The following year Dana Bartlett opened an art gallery in Los Angeles where he exhibited not only his paintings but those of other local artists. His decorative style exemplifies the “Eucalyptus School.” As well as Plein air landscapes, he also painted nocturnes and scenes from his travels in Europe.
