Collection Historical Note

Gustav Fredrick Goetsch (1877-1969) was born in Gaylord, Minnesota. Goetsch attended the Minneapolis School of Fine Arts for five years, followed by a year at the New York School of Fine Arts, and several further years studying art in Europe. In 1904–1909 he returned to the Minneapolis Art School as an instructor.

From 1909 to 1914 he lived in St. Louis and taught at Washington University’s St. Louis School of Art (predecessor to the School of Fine Arts). Returning to the north, from 1914-1917 Goetsch was the Principal of the Fine Arts Department at the Minneapolis School of Fine Arts, before settling permanently in St. Louis and returning to the faculty of Washington University’s St. Louis School of Art in 1917. From 1946, until his retirement in 1952, Goetsch also taught in the Washington University School of Architecture.

Highly prolific, Goetsch’s work is often considered warmly spirited, cautiously serene, and exhibits a considerable amount of technical skill.
