Austrian-born Julius Seyler (1873-1955) began his artistic studies at the Munich Academy in the late 1890s, where he concentrated on painting plein-air landscapes and wildlife. While Seyler’s art captured the range of his impressions of Glacier National Park, most of his subject matter focused on historical nostalgia featuring the Blackfeet people. Through his unique post-impressionist gaze, Seyler builds form, motion, and atmosphere through the application of color. In this way, more than any other artist, Seyler imparts the lived experience of the landscape and its emotional effect on the Blackfeet people.
