Alfred E. Lambourne, Castle Gate, Price River Canyon [[Denver & Rio Grande #4], 1889, oil on canvas, 60 x 48 in. Private Collection. Credit: Painters of Utah's Canyons and Deserts, by Donna Poulton & Vern Swanson At age 16, Alfred Lambourne arrived in Utah in 1866 by Wagon Train—walking the entire way.  Among the Pioneer artists, he was the most colorful character.  He painted backdrops for the Salt Lake Theater and his art and poetry reflected his interest in transcendetalist romanticism in vogue during the latter half of the 19th century. When Thomas Moran came to Utah, as he often did in the 1870s, his first stop was at the home of Alfred Lambourne.
