William Otte (1871-1957)
We are especially interested in buying artwork by William Otte.
On December 6, 1871, William L. Otte was born in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. As a young man, Otte worked as a successful stockbroker in New York City while studying part-time at the New York School of Art under painter Robert Henri (1865-1929). When he decided to start a fulltime career as an artist in 1913, he moved to Santa Barbara, CA. Up to his death in 1957, he continued to paint landscapes of the surrounding area.
