WILLIAM SCHALDACH, Carl Rungius: Big Game Painter

According to Donald Crouch, “...Alaskan Moose (Plate 45), was published in the 1945 Schaldach book, handprinted and inserted in an edition of 160. This print must have been very important to Rungius since he included it in the only book written about his art in his lifetime, a book which he helped write.”
