Measurements 44 by 22 in. alternate measurements 111.8 by 56 cm. DESCRIPTION signed F. Machetanz © and dated 1983, l.l. oil on masonite PROVENANCE Artique Fine Arts, Anchorage, Alaska (acquired directly from theartist)Acquired by the present owner from the above CATALOGUE NOTE A copy of a typewritten description of "Whaling Lookout" by theartist is available with the lot. It reads as follows:"One member of a whaling crew, which is camping out on the icefield, has climbed the high pile of pressure ice to look farther inthe distance toward the sea.With his binoculars, he can spot a whale which is coming north,past their camp on the edge of the ice field. It is said that in the older days, the purpose of the blanket orskin toss of the Eskimos was used to give a higher vantage point,and thus spot the oncoming whale. The thickness of the ice cakesbuilt up during the winter also indicates it is spring in theArctic, which is also whale hunting time for the coastal Eskimosaround and above the Arctic Circle. This painting was started with an underpainting in blue andwhite to which layers of transparent oil pigment or glazes wereadded to produce this final effect. It is much the technique of theold masters such as Vermeer, Rembrandt and Titian."
