George Resler (1882 - 1954)
George Resler was born November 12, 1882 in Waseca, Minnesota and moved with his family at the age of seven to St. Paul. He grew up there and went to Chicago at the age of seventeen to study at the Art Institute and work as a commercial artist. When he returned a few years later, he became interested in etching and since there was no one in the vicinity to teach him, he taught himself.
While many of his years were spent in partnership with Frederick Bock in a commercial art firm, he pursued his work in printmaking enough to achieve a national reputation. His travels in France and Italy in 1926 were actually financed by a group of St. Paul art patrons.
