Information on the artist (from Wikipedia):
Fred Machetanz (February 20, 1908 – October 6, 2002) was an Alaskan painter and illustrator who specialized in depictions of Alaskan scenes, people and wildlife. He first came to the territory in 1935, and returned in 1942 after volunteering with the U.S. Navy and requesting a posting to the Aleutian Islands during World War II.

Machetanz married Sara Dunn, a writer, in 1947, and the two settled near Palmer, Alaska in 1951. They published several books together and collaborated on films for Walt Disney, the Territory of Alaska, and Encyclopædia Britannica. They also made many promotional and lecture tours through the lower 48 states from 1948 through 1960. The turning point in Fred's painting career came on April 21, 1962, when Bob Atwood, editor and publisher of the Anchorage Times, arranged for a one-man show of his paintings. The works at the show sold quickly, and the success allowed Fred to pursue painting full-time.

Machetanz was a strong colorist. He most often painted on hardboard, which was prepared with layers of an ultramarine blue base using a large brush. He then applied a transparent oil glazing technique to build up layers from there, emphasizing areas of color and form. This gave his works a cool, luminous quality that he felt reflected the environment of the Arctic.

During his career, he produced fifty stone lithographs of scenes of Alaska.

Please look at our additional listings, we have several Machetanz (if you are looking for a specific print, please email me, we may have it!), Lance Hartzell, Annette Hartzell, Leavens, Salvador Dali and many more.

Any questions, please ask.
