Dan Deuter is known nationally for his stirring scenes of the west as it was. Dan has combined a lifetime of personal experiences and research of the Old West into his art. His favorite subjects are the mountain men, American Indians and wildlife of the late 1880’s. Deuter grew up on a ranch in South Dakota. He chased cattle, mended fences, hunted and fished. His life as a cowboy and his deep interest in western history led his art career in that direction, and historically accurate paintings of the Old West are his trademark. He’s interested in rebuilding historic cabins and repairs old equipment, traps beaver, hunts buffalo, hand-tans hides, and makes buckskin clothing and quivers decorated with beading. That’s why his art is so authentic. He also likes to produce realistic photo shoots for artists across the country. Dan and Elli live on their ranch near Montrose, Colorado.
