Paul Dyck (1917 - 2006) was born in Chicago and is known for Indian figure and western genre painting. His preferred medium is egg tempera with "old master" oil glazes, and he also paints in watercolor and Sumiye ink with Japanese brushes. He is a descendent of the Flemish painter, Sir Anthony Van Dyck (1599-1641). As a small child, Dyck lived in Calgary, Canada among the Blackfeet, Crow, and Cheyenne Indians where his parents were pioneers. Later he lectured on American Indian culture and became a collector of Indian artifacts. He was given the name "Rainbow Hand" by members of the Sioux Indian tribe with whom he lived in 1934. He also became the adopted son of two Indian leaders: One Elk and Lone Wolf, the Blackfoot artist. At the age of eight, Dyck was taken by his parents to Europe and apprenticed to an artist uncle, a painter, with studios in Florence, Paris, Prague, and Rome. By age fifteen, he was on his own, studying at the Munich Academy with Johann von Skramlik and exhibiting his collection of Indian artifacts. He served in World War II as a Navy artist and then settled in Rimrock, Arizona, where he had first visited in 1938. He became a rancher while pursuing his art.
