About

This self portrait is by the well-known California artist Olaf Palm (1935-2000). The fact that the painting is a self-portrait can be ascertained by looking at the front cover of the wonderful biography of Olaf Palm by Irene Thomas. The painting is composed of oil on board and measures 20 inches x 16 inches (22.5 inches x 18.5 inches framed). It is nicely framed in a brown and gold wood frame that goes well with the art. The painting and frame are in very good condition. The son of immigrant Finnish farmers, Palm, born in Detroit, was raised in Northern California. He studied art at San Jose State College and was influenced by 17th Century Dutch Masters. He settled in the Mendocino Coast of California. His subjects were bucolic scenes and artists, musicians, and craftspeople at work as well as scenes of his extensive travels. He traveled extensively, painting in Mexico, Europe and the South Seas, and exhibited in galleries and museums for more than 25 years. His modest studio was north of Fort Bragg out of which he worked for 25 years, his favorite subjects were musicians.
