“If the world now is greedy, the artist must be generous. If there is war and hate, he must be peaceful and loving. If the world is insane, he must offer sanity, and if the world is becoming a void, he must fill it with his soul.” Russell Chatham’s life work embodies his credo. The most notable of contemporary Western landscape painters, Chatham has focused especially on rural Northern California and the wilds of Montana for his iconic works. A sportsman and angler with a love of the outdoors, Chatham also reveres good writing, and his friendships with poets and writers have resulted in his works gracing the book covers of authors such as Jim Harrison, Rick Bass, and Tom McGuane. Here we present a gallery of Chatham’s works reflecting the area around Bolinas and Tomales Bay, California.
