|Lead||John Henri Moser Utah Oil on Board Painting|
Nice painting. Signed as shown. Dated 1932. Has paint loss in the center above the pond on the Aspen Tree as shown. 11.25" by 12.5" framed. John Henri Moser was born to John Moser and Elizabeth Flueman on September 13, 1876, in Wabern, Switzerland. Of seven children in the family, John Henri was the fifth. At an early age he dropped the name John and went by the name Henri. In 1881, his family moved to Bern, Switzerland, where his father pursued stone cutting as a career and where Henri first attended school. His early love of painting and drawing became evident as he was constantly chastised for sketching in class. One teacher even beat his hands until blistered for such behavior in her class. However, even this experience could not sway him from his love of art. Some years later, the Moser family became converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In 1888, the family emigrated to America and crossed the plains in a covered wagon. They settled first in Payson, Utah, and later moved to Logan, Utah. It was in Logan that Moser began to work for the Diem family on their farm. A short while later, he began working in a printing shop in Enterprise, Utah: a job that was to last for the next ten years. While working at the printing shop, Moser decided to further his formal education. He went to work in the Gill Edge Mine in Montana to earn money for school. After saving the required funds, he returned to Logan and enrolled in the Utah State Agriculture College (USAC). He initially registered in the School of Engineering, but after some persuasion from Professor Stoddare, Henri changed his studies to art. On September 13, 1905, Henri married Aldina Wurden and later had six sons and daughters with her. They continued to live in Logan where Henri pursued his studies along with Alma B. Wright at Brigham Young College. In 1910, Dr. John A. Widstoe, President of Utah State Agriculture College, granted Henri a loan that allowed Henri to travel to Paris, France. In Paris, Henri enrolled at Colarossi Delecluse Academy and studied with Marvel Berenaur. He continued his studies at Carri and Miller. During this time, Henri became acquainted with Pablo Picasso. Henri later said of Picasso, "I know him well, he painted beautiful things then. Today he paints to advertise himself and laughs at the credulous public. He has wonderful talent and ability." In 1911, Moser returned to the United States to teach at the USAC. He later taught at the Agricultural College in Ceder City before moving to Idaho to homestead land in Malad. He ranched and painted there for the next eight years. Henri Moser proved his talent and ability with each of his creations. He received numerous awards and exhibited throughout the country.
