                  b.1906 - 1978

                  Daniel Stookey Lutz was born in Decatur, Illinois on July 7, 1906 to Florence Stookey and Samuel Milton Lutz, who owned a music store in Decatur. The muses were plentiful in the young artist’s life: his father was a noted violinist and his mother a fine watercolorist and occasional painter. He was aware of his passion for art at an early age. He came of age in the Roaring 20s but he matured, as the country did, under the pressures of the Great Depression. He was twenty-three when the stock market fell in the fall of 1929. Fortunately for Lutz, he had already commenced his studies at Art Institute of Chicago (AIC) when the panic of Black Thursday occurred.

                  After four years of studies at the AIC, Dan Lutz received the James Nelson Raymond Traveling Fellowship in 1931. This allowed the young artist a full year of travel in Europe, primarily in France. Very few, if any, paintings have survived from either his student days or from this early European travel. In the fall of 1932 Lutz returned to Chicago where he married Dorothy Best, with whom he would spend the rest of his life. Later that year Lutz came to Los Angeles, California. He finished his formal training at the University of Southern California (USC) and received a Bachelor in Fine Arts degree.

                  For the next forty years Lutz would make his way in life as a professional artist. His work received local and national recognition and he was beginning to be noticed in Europe when he suffered a stroke and was forced to retire. He had numerous one-person exhibitions, received awards and was recognized as one of California’s leading lights in the artistic community. As the exclusive representative of the artist’s estate Sullivan Goss is proud to offer works from every era of the artist’s career in nearly all media: oil, acrylic, watercolor, and pen and ink

                          During this time of crisis, when our lives are upended daily as new information is available, John Marzolf and the staff at the Broadmoor Galleries want to extend our heartfelt gratitude for your partnership and loyalty.  We are reminded of our strength in the community during this moment and we are truly grateful for our extended family.  We have been contacted by many of our artists, who are also concerned about our current events and they’ve decided to lower their prices during these uncertain times.  We know that as the world seems to stand, still life continues to happen - birthdays, anniversaries, Easter and Mother’s Day all will still occur and these lower prices will ease the strain at this time.  Inquire about specific pieces and Krista or Jamie will let you know the temporality lowered prices.

                          Currently, our physical locations will not be open to the public.  We hope to reopen with the Broadmoor Resort and Properties on May 22nd for Memorial Day Weekend.  Until then we plan to be fully functional through our website, social media, email, phone calls, and texts.  Explore our website’s new chat feature for immediate contact with an associate.  If you have any questions about our pieces or artists please reach out.  Our associates are able to respond to any of your inquiries and will do so promptly.
