Additional Information

Danish-born painter Olaf C. Selter arrived in America at just 14 years. Within weeks of landing on American shores, he was in Montana with his family. First working as a cowboy, Seltzer later found employment with the Great Northern Railway as a machinist and repairman. It was in Great Falls where he met Charles M. Russell and many of Russell’s prominent collectors, who took an immediate liking to the younger artist’s works. In addition to his cowboy and Native American paintings, Seltzer was also fond of hunting and adventure scenes, as seen here in Dangerous Grizzly.
