William Saltzman (American, 1916-2006). Large oil on canvas abstract painting titled "Lavender Mist." Signed and dated 1980 along the lower right; pencil signed along the verso.

William Saltzman was an influential Minnesotan abstract artist, who lived and worked in Minneapolis for much of his life. He was a longtime professor in the art department at Macalester College in St. Paul. His artistic subject matter ranged from landscapes and figures to abstractions, in oil paintings, watercolors, pastels, sculptures, and mixed media. Saltzman's sculpture and stained-glass work in public spaces are well known and his work is enjoyed by owners in many private collections internationally. Throughout his life, Saltzman was fascinated by the interplay of light, color, shape and texture. His work exemplifies his exploration and mastery of these elements.
