“…always a new horizon—but always back to the deserts of America.” - Ed Ainsworth writing about the artist Don Perceval

Don Perceval was born in England in 1908, but moved to California with his family when he was young. He studied at the Chouinard Art School and illustrated his first book at age 19. He made numerous trips to the desert to paint and ultimately, the Hopi made him a member of their tribe in 1952. Among his illustration commissions was the work he did for the “Santa Fe Magazine,” published by the Santa Fe Railroad.
