      Magnus Heurlin Alaskan Ptarmigan Oil Painting

      Est: $4,000 - $6,000

      27" by 35". Magnus Colcord Heurlin (1895 - 1986) was active/lived in Alaska / Sweden. Magnus Heurlin is known for Genre, figure-Inuit, illustrator. One of Alaska's earliest, most beloved, and longest-tenured resident painters, Rusty Heurlin was a keen observer of the lives of Native people and settlers in northern Alaska. He was born in Christianstad, Sweden, of Swedish parents and trained at the Fenway School of Illustration in Boston. The artist arrived in Valdez, Alaska in 1916. He left to serve in World War I, but returned to Alaska in 1924 for good. He eventually made his home in Ester, just outside Fairbanks, where he lived until his death in 1986. Heurlin based his work on the accumulated experience of almost seventy years Alaskan residence. He spent, for instance, four whaling seasons at Barrow in the early days of Eskimo whaling in umiaks under sail -- a favorite subject in later years. The artist is best known for several cycles of large paintings chronicling Alaska's history. "The Great Stampede," "The Great Land," and "Our Heritage" series each illustrate major themes in the history of Alaska's Native and pioneer cultures. Other Heurlin paintings are more modest in scale, but are all the more effective for their quiet evocation of the lives of Eskimo hunters and pioneer Alaskans -- ways of life the artist knew well and fervently admired.

He joined the U.S. Navy in 1917 during World War I, serving in France. After the war, Heurlin moved to Connecticut, where he worked as an illustrator. In the 1930s he was selected as an artist for the WPA Arts Project in Westport's public school buildings. He returned to Alaska around 1935 and worked on the gold dredges near Ester for the Fairbanks Exploration (FE) Company. Heurlin taught the first art classes at the University of Alaska Fairbanks in the 1950s, and received an honorary doctorate from the university in 1971. HIs paintings are characterized by a pastel palette and luminous skies. (Sources: Connecticut State Library website, Askart).
