Biography

Victor Dowd (Westport, CT) Army, 23rd HQ Special Troops, Europe. As his company – part of the top-secret "Deception Corps" - moved across Europe, Dowd recorded the places he saw and the women, children, and "displaced persons" he met along the way. He filled dozens of sketchbooks with beautiful pencil and ink drawings. After the war, he became a successful freelance and fashion illustrator, and an instructor at the Famous Artists School, founded by fellow Westport artist Stevan Dohanos. Dowd’s fine art now includes figurative works and scenes from travels to Europe far different than the one he first encountered some 60 years ago
