Theme/Style Modernism, California Scene, figurative art
Media Oils, murals, watercolors, lithographs, etchings
Artistic Focus Otis Oldfield, who developed a style that was considered both international and Modernist, is best remembered for his striking depictions of Telegraph Hill, the Embarcadero and San Francisco Bay, among some of California scene painting’s finest works. That reputation is augmented by his recognition as a forceful figural painter.
• Oldfield spent ten years in Europe, where he
studied and experimented with a number of emerging styles – among
them Cubism, Dadaism, Fauvism, Impressionism and Surrealism.
The Gallery proudly represents the Estate of Otis Oldfield.
