From "A Note on Joseph Raffael": "As a rule Raffael shows the infallible mark of a 'natural' painter, truth of tone. To make one vibrant passage is not a big thing; but to fill a large canvas with light and air so that every rock, leaf and water splash holds its just ration of space through a prolonged, inch-by-inch inspection--that is the real test." Acquired from the private library of photorealist, Robert Bechtle and art historian, Whitney Chadwick. Heavy and oversized items may require additional shipping.
