Edmund Wattis Dumke and Carol Dean Browning Dumke were descendants of two notable 20th century families in the Western United States. They were both generous philanthropists, horse enthusiasts and art collectors. Ed was also an entrepreneur. Ed married his Ogden hometown sweetheart, Carol Dean Browning, on Sept. 12, 1950.
Carol’s father, Val Browning, was an enthusiastic collector of art, jewelry, decorative arts and Old Master paintings. Thirty-nine paintings of his, including Dance Around the Maypole by Pieter Brueghel, the Younger (1564-1638) were donated to the University of Utah to form the Browning Collection at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts.
The collection up for bid includes items from Val Browning’s estate not donated to the museum, plus other acquired items purchased by Ed and Carol over a lifetime of collecting art. Most were displayed in Ed and Carol’s long-term home in Sun Valley. To learn more, visit or call 213-748-8008.
