Russell Chatham

is a contemporary American landscape artist who spent most of his career living in Livingston, Montana.  His work has been exhibited in over 400 one-man shows in museums and galleries.  In the early 1980s Chatham began making lithographs and now stands as one of the world’s foremost practitioners of that craft.  In addition to his work as a painter, Chatham has also published a series of short stories, Dark Waters (Clark City Press, which he founded in 1987), in which he details the exploits of his fly fishing and bird hunting friends, like the author Jim Harrison.  In 2011 Chatham moved to California.
