Snapping Gator Turtle

Walter Anderson (1903-1965). Anderson's paintings, drawing, murals, block prints, sculpture, carvings and writings of coastal plants, animals, landscapes and people have placed him among the most compelling and singular artists of the 20th century. Anderson spent much of his life on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and many of his paintings, such as the snapping gator turtle, reflect that area's flora and fauna. Wrote Anderson, "In order to realize the beauty of man, we must realize his relation to nature."
