Artistic Lineage: Deane G. Keller

In an effort to understand the lineage of our own artistic experiences, and those we pass along to our students, we have been researching relationships from our teachers to their teachers over many generations. Here is a tree which traces our lineage through one of our teachers, Deane G. Keller, to the founding of the French Academy in 1648.

I am looking for notice about Deane Keller, an colonel of the US Army, who was in Pisa, Italy, in 1944, september, liberating the town with my father Pierino "Pedro", partizan. They made also a control of the pisan monuments. Dean Keller lies now in the Pisa's Cemetery.
Thank you
