About

Leon A. Makielski (American, 1885-1974) October Indian Summer, 1918 Oil on canvas Signed lower right, titled verso 25in H x 30in L With frame: 29in H x 33 3/4in L x 1in W Leon Makielski (1885-1974) was an American portrait and landscape painter. The young artist was interested in learning more about European Impressionism, so after graduating from The Art Institute, he traveled to Paris, where he spent four years studying at the Académie Julian and Académie de la Grande Chaumière. Makielski is included in a book by William H. Gerdts called “Monet’s Giverny: An Impressionist Colony” as an artist who contributed to the arts scene at the time Monet was painting there. In 1910 and 1911, Makielski exhibited paintings at Paris’ famed Salons. In 1912, Leon booked passage on the Titanic, but decided at the last minute to stay in France, a decision that saved his life, but not two of his paintings, which he had sent on the ship to be brought to America. In America, he maintained a private commercial portrait studio and taught art at the University of Michigan (1915-1927) and the Meinsinger School of Art in Detroit. His portraits are listed in the Smithsonian Institution’s Catalog of American Portraits and many of the portraits depicting University of Michigan faculty are displayed in University buildings, including one of the poet Robert Frost.
