Biography  
Harold Gretzner


Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Harold Gretzner began his art studies in Washington D.C. in the 1920s. He then moved to the Bay Area of California and completed his art education in Oakland at the College of Arts and Crafts. Most of the scenes of his regionalist watercolors were completed on location in northern California. He used large sheets and the wet on wet technique for his transparent watercolors. After he retired from commercial art in the 1960s, he painted in the Far East and Europe. He also gave watercolor lessons in the Bay Area.
