Biography Chester "Chet" Engle
Chet Engle (American Artist 1918 - 1994)
He was born in Illinois in 1918. Had he a choice, he probably would have made his birthplace Zanzibar, Capri, or some other romantic place. He had a reasonably normal childhood, except that his family moved about the Midwest quite a bit. His father sold advertising for newspapers, and occasionally did layout for the ads; so from the time Chet was very young, he had drawing materials available. And, early on, he has an interest in drawing and painting. Even as a child, he spent considerable time roaming about the art museums in Midwestern cities where he lived. He was fascinated with the paintings of the Flemish, Dutch, and Italian Renaissance painters.
