Russell Chatham's landscapes are inhabited by moving light and shadow, sun-blasted hills and soft rivers, looming mountains and melancholy trees. He belongs to no current movement, lives far from the bicoastal art world, and his paintings consequently defy easy description. This volume, published in conjunction with a retrospective exhibition at the Museum of the Rockies, includes Chatham's early oils from Northern California as well as the Montana paintings that have brought him national acclaim.

Russell Chatham lives in Livingston, Montana where he continues to paint the surrounding beauty. Russell also produces Limited Edition lithographs, owns Clark City Press, Inc. & operates Chatham's Livingston Bar & Grille.Review:
To the reading public, Russell Chatham may be best known for the paintings which grace the novels of Jim Harrison. Chatham's art has achieved a certain level of recognition, even if the artist's name is not as known as his work. That imbalance, however, is changing with the publication of One Hundred Paintings, the first book dedicated to Chatham's ongoing 30-year career as a visual artist. Chatham - on his own terms paints the Northern California landscape of his upbringing and early adulthood, and the far ranging country of Montana where he currently resides. Chatham is a singular contemporary landscape painter. There are no cowboys, no roaming stallions. Rather, Chatham paints from a spiritual belief in the memory of place an inner view of the outer world. Chatham is also well regarded among the sporting public as an expert fly fisherman - he caught a world-record striped bass in the 1960s - and has authored numerous articles and books including Dark Waters and 7be Angler's Coast. One Hundred Paintings complements his varied reputations, and features a brief introduction by the novelist and poet Jim Harrison, an appreciation by the art historian Chris Waddington, and an autobiographical sketch by Russell Chatham. -- From Independent Publisher
