Artist's Description

Dakota Woman was on and off his easel for years before Harvey Dunn finally finished it in 1941. Not long after, Leland Case, founder of the Middle Border Museum (Now the Dakota Discovery Museum) in Mitchell, visited Dunn at his studio in Tenafly, N.J. Knowing Case was collecting items for the museum, Dunn told him to pick one of more than 40 prairie paintings to bring to South Dakota. Case wrote that he was “electrified” by the offer and chose Dakota Woman. It was unveiled in April 1942 during “Harvey Dunn Day” on the Dakota Wesleyan University campus.
