The Alpine Northwest, by Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007). As an avid naturalist, Charley Harper’s life’s work was painting the insects, plants, birds, and animals he loved. Early on, his ultrarealistic works gave way to familiar scenes based on bold geometric shapes, crisp lines, and jolts of unmodulated color. Harper’s posters for conservation organizations have become some of his most enjoyed works—skillful and playful menageries of local wildlife. The Alpine Northwest is one of ten posters he was commissioned to create for the National Park Service. The bald eagle and other plants and animals are inhabitants of Olympic, Mount Rainier, and North Cascades National Parks.
