Collection: Buk Ulreich 1884 - 1966 Follow artist
Ulreich was born in Hungary, but his family emigrated the same year to America. He studied at the Kansas City Art Institute and the Pennsylvania Fine Arts Academy. A noted muralist, he produced work for the Chicago World Fair and for the Radio City Music Hall. He also worked as an illustrator and an interior designer for major public buildings. As an artist he seems to have drawn his subjects from the Wild West and in 1941 he illustrated a children's book on Navaho Indians. Arizona Cowboys seems typical of his work both in subject matter and in being in the decorative style of a muralist and interior designer.
