Anders Aldrin (1889-1970) Morro Bay #2 P1135

One of a pair of extraordinarily fluent and powerful oil sketches (see P1134).

Anders Aldrin was a Swedish immigrant who began painting at the late age of 34. He studied at Otis Art Institute with Edouard Antonin Vysekal (1890-1939), before continuing on to the Santa Barbara School of Fine Arts and San Francisco. He worked under Frank Moreley Fletcher and among contemporaries Millard Sheets (1907-1989) and Milford Zornes (b. 1908). His modernist paintings of cityscapes, portraits and landscapes demonstrate a Fauvist impulse carried out by strong brushwork and a distinctive palette.
