Artist. He spent his childhood in the woods of Maine which solidified his love of animals and the outdoors placing this focus on his art. Dunton ventured to the west making many summer trips hunting, fishing and cowboying.He was already an accomplished artist submitting pen and ink drawings to local newspapers. He became prosperous as a western illustrator for Harper's, Schribners and many other magazines including artwork for books. After a visit to the artist center in Taos, New Mexico, he became a permanent resident giving up his lucrative work as a commercial illustrator and became a struggling painter of Western scenes. W. Herbert Dunton was one of the founders of Taos Society of Artists which exhibited his works and other artist during annual exhibitions around the country. His health began to deteriorate after receiving an injury from a horse accident followed by prostrate cancer, then stomach and lung cancer which took his life.  (bio by: Donald Greyfield (inactive))
