Biography from Braarud Fine Art:
One of Alaska's earliest, most beloved, and longest-tenured resident painters, Rusty Heurlin was a keen observer of the lives of Native people and settlers in northern Alaska.

He was born in Christianstad, Sweden, of Swedish parents and trained at the Fenway School of Illustration in Boston. The artist arrived in Valdez, Alaska in 1916. He left to serve in World War I, but returned to Alaska in 1924 for good. He eventually made his home in Ester, just outside Fairbanks, where he lived until his death in 1986.

Heurlin based his work on the accumulated experience of almost seventy years Alaskan residence. He spent, for instance, four whaling seasons at Barrow in the early days of Eskimo whaling in umiaks under sail -- a favorite subject in later years.

The artist is best known for several cycles of large paintings chronicling Alaska's history. "The Great Stampede," "The Great Land," and "Our Heritage" series each illustrate major themes in the history of Alaska's Native and pioneer cultures. Other Heurlin paintings are more modest in scale, but are all the more effective for their quiet evocation of the lives of Eskimo hunters and pioneer Alaskans -- ways of life the artist knew well and fervently admired.
