The Bicentennial Paintings of John FalterMay 5, 2013
Back in the late 1970′s I used to by many of my art books from a mail-order place called North Light. They also printed out a small pamphlet magazine that they mailed to their customers on art related issues, and in their March 1978 magazine there was an article on a series of paintings by the great illustrator, John Falter.
Falter was a well known illustrator through much of the 20th Century. In 1974 he was commissioned to do a series of six paintings for the American Bicentennial of 1976 by the 3M Company entitled ” From Sea to Shining Sea.” Each is painted in oil at the same size of 50″ x 36″.
