Glacier National Park by Alexander Dzigurski
A beautiful oil painting of Glacier National Park by Alexander Dzigurski (1911 - 1995), in original gilt frame. Dzigurski captured the early morning glow of the mountains, the rushing river, and the rugged mountain terrain as if we could step into it. This is a fine example of Alexander Dzigurski's ample talent in painting scenes of the American West. Following is a short biography on Alexander Dzigurski:
Dzigurski started his artistic career in his native Yugoslavia by decorating the interior of churches, which he continued to do in the U.S. after he and his family had fled from Tito's communist regime via Italy. By 1952 he could afford to travel and paint landscapes, eventually settling in California where his art is most associated with.
Dzigurski traveled widely in the U.S. , painting in the Rocky Mountains, Grand Tetons, Glacier National Park, New England, Carmel, and along both coasts. He studied at the School of Art in Belgrade, and at the Academy of Art in Munich, Germany. He was a member of various organizations including: Fine Art Institute, Los Angeles, Am. A. Prof. League, and Society of Western Artists. His work has been exhibited in the following museums: Belgrade Art Museum, Yugoslavia, Ford Museum, Detroit, and Boston Museum of Fine Arts. His paintings can also be found in the Franklin Mint Museum of American Art in Pennsylvania, the Republic Bank of Dallas, The Michigan Bank of Chicago, Illinois, the Ravenswood Bank of Chicago, Illinois, and at the Caterpillar Tractor Company in Peoria, Illinois.
Dzigurski's seascapes and landscapes are most realistic and have broad appeal. Having become one of America's well-known artists, Alexander Dzigurski died in 1995.
