Olaf C. Seltzer b. 1877 Denmark d. 1957 Great Falls, Montana He moved to Great Falls at 19, he worked as a cowboy and for the Great Northern Railway always sketching. He became close friend with Charles Russell who took Olaf under his wing. By 1901, Seltzer was working in oils, gaining much of his knowledge from books. By 1921, he was a full-time painter and in 192moved to New York City to help Russell complete some of his commissions. He created over 2500 works of art during his lifetime including a series of miniatures of Montana history commissioned by Philip Cole, a wealthy collector. The project nearly ruined Seltzer's eyesight, and he had to complete the series by using a magnifying glass.
