John Clymer Studio

Contents of Clymer's original studio in Jackson Hole

In 1991, Doris Clymer and the Clymer family donated the contents of John Clymer’s Jackson Hole studio to the Museum.

This recreation of John Clymer's studio includes his art supplies as well as the many artifacts he collected during his lifetime.

Clymer's studio consisted of hundreds of reference books, studio props, and costumes.

John Clymer began as an illustrator and later switched his focus to painting historical scenes and events that occurred on the American frontier.

John Clymer said that he always tried to take the viewer of his art “to an actual place and make them feel that they were really there.”
