Northwest abstract painting
Neil Meitzler (American 1930-2009) was born in Pueblo, Colorado in 1930. He was an American artist who lived and worked most of his life in the Pacific Northwest. Meitzler was a member of the northwest school of art, with fellow artists Mark Tobey, Morris Graves, Kenneth Callahan, and more. Meitzler’s works are held in many private and institutional collections, including the Seattle Art Museum, the Tacoma Art Museum, the Whatcom County Museum in Bellingham, WA, the Museum of Northwest Art in La Conner, WA, and the Henry Gallery, University of Washington, Seattle, WA.
This work is from the late 1950s and is reminiscent of the work of fellow artist Morris Graves.
