This biography from the Archives of AskART:
From Detroit, Michigan, Fred Rypsam became a painter after he retired as an employee for the Studebaker Company, designing buggies before the company started making cars. He was noted especially for his snowscenes in impressionist style and for marine depictions including private yachts.

At the time of his death, he was the oldest member of the Scarab Club of Detroit, having joined in 1918. He painted the murals of the club's extravagant yearly ball. He was described in his obituary as the "Dean of Michigan artists" and the "Master of Snow". The obituary also stated that "A love of boating vied with his love of art, and for many years the Rypsams lived during the summer months on their 40-foot cruiser, Seaway, which he built a half-century ago in his back yard. He was a long-time member of the Detroit Yacht Club, where he kept his boat.


Richard French, Collector of work by this artist. His sources are Arthur Gibson, "Early Michigan Artists" (courtesy Detroit Museum), and the Detroit newspaper obituary of the artist.
