Reichert's Art Gallery label to verso. About the Artist: Born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, William Fett was a painter in abstract, surrealist style of landscapes, often based on scenes of Mexico. He graduated from the School of the Art Institute in Chicago in 1941. From there he undertook several extended visits to Mexico in making the acquaintance of expatriate Surrealist artists who had escaped the unhealthy turmoil of European upheavals by moving to that country. Some of his Mexican watercolors were accorded a one-man show at Durlacher Brothers Gallery in New York on October 5, 1943. The positive response to the work resulted in acquisition of work by the New York Museum of Modern Art. In 1946, William Fett received appointment as teacher at the Washington University, St. Louis School of Art, a position he served as Professor of Drawing and Painting to 1981, when he retired as Professor Emeritus of Fine Arts. From 1982 through 1983, he was acting Professor of Painting at the San Antonio Art Institute in Texas. He later returned to Mexico City, where he died September 10, 2006.

Property from the Saint Louis Art Museum, sold to benefit the Acquisitions fund Provenance: Mr. and Mrs. Morton D. May In the file compiled by the art museum, there is a sense of familiarity as Fett was a St. Louis artist who taught at WashU for a number of years and eventually retired in Mexico City. St. Louis was obviously thought of as a home to him even after he left, and he cultivated his connections to the area. Spanish Landscape was done in Spain in the 50's during a trip that resulted in a large body of work.
