Charles Reiffel: An American Post-Impressionist
Essay by Bram Dijkstra: Edited by Ariel Plotek (Author)
New! ''Charles Reiffel: An American Post impressionist'' brings a fresh assessment of the artist, firmly establishing his place as a national figure of American painting. This splendid book was produced as a catalogue to accompany the San Diego Museum of Art exhibit by the same name. It contains a wealth of color illustrations and text that reveal why Reiffel is recognized as a leading figure in the Post Impressionist period of American art. Often referred to as the ''American Van Gogh,'' he drew his artistic inspiration from the beauty of California, and in particular, the San Diego area. Reiffel's work is a stunning mix of strong Post Impressionist and Expressionist brushwork, which has been newly appreciated and re-discovered. This book is a fine addition to the library of lovers of California art, and the first definitive work published on this unique artist.
