Recent Landscapes -- John Griefen

John Griefen's landscapes are an art collector's delight because of their quality and scarcity. They are as rare as hens' teeth; if you see one you would be well advised to grab it immediately, be it a small watercolour or oil. Griefen's unusual use of color and thickness of oil paint, combined with the small size of the paintings give them a gem-like sculptural quality.

These pictures can be seen occasionally at Salander-O'Reilly's in Manhattan, the C.S.Schulte Gallery, South Orange, N.J., and Meredith Long & Co., Houston. They are utilitarian: great food for the spirit.
