James Fetherolf

(American, 1925 – 1994)

 

     James Fetherolf, given the appellation "A Contemporary Legend" in landscape painting, captured on canvas the raw beauty of America. His works seem to tap us on the shoulder and say, "Step into nature. Join me in a vision of beauty."

     From the high country meadows, to the silhouetted mountain cathedrals, to great rock monoliths guarding foreboding deserts, James Fetherolf painted the many faces of our land in a way unlike all other landscape artists. Oak shaded country barns surrounded by rolling hills of wheat and rye also typify the Americana theme that he painted so well. From the tiniest buckwheat and seedling, to the loftiest snow-capped peak, each was given the same thoughtful attention, and each appears just as impressive within the composition. Fetherolf explained, "Without detail the emotional impact is lost, and that sense of ‘being’ disappears." He added, "It is important to reach past the flatness of the canvas, and pull the planes of perspective forward."

     Born in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, in 1925, Fetherolf came to California after graduating from Syracuse University of Fine Arts, in 1949. After many years of working with Fox Studios and Walt Disney Studios, as a highly successful matte artist, he left to pursue a career as a professional artist. The response to his painting was so overwhelmingly enthusiastic, that within a few years they were hanging in many of today’s finest art collections, including his former boss Walt Disney.

     When Fetherolf was accepted into the bicentennial exhibition, with five paintings at the prestigious R.W. Norton Museum in Shreveport, LA, he was honored with the coveted Gold Medal from the Franklin Mint Gallery of American Art. He was also distinguished with a commissioned painting depicting Washington DC. It is now on permanent display in Philadelphia. James Fetherolf is listed in the American Art Analog and is considered one of the twentieth century’s true masters of art.

    


In passing James Fetherolf has left a legacy in American Landscape Art.
