Reima Ratti: Life and Art in the Great Depression

Lake County artist Reima V. Ratti (1914-1945) was born in Waukegan to Finnish immigrants and came of age during the Great Depression when he labored as a rock crusher with the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The backbreaking work became an inspiration for his art, and led to his acceptance as an official artist of the CCC Art Program. Ratti’s love of art guided his life as he documented the world around him in sketches and paintings of landscapes and his community, until his untimely death at the age of 31.
