Radetzky’s father Carl was stone lithographer who worked at Reuterdahl's stone lithograph printing studio in Malmö, and then took over B Cronholm's lithographic studio in Malmö. It was here from his father that the young Radetzky received his first art education. He continued his studies at the Högre konstindustriella skolan in Stockholmm, followed by time at the Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest between 1904 and 1908 and then at the Academy of Graphic Art in Leipzig from 1913 to 1914.

He had a two artist show with Gotthard Sandberg at Malmö City Hall in 1929 and with a solo exhibition at the SDS Hall in Malmö.
