Artistic Focus Like his political views, Frede Vidar’s art was difficult to categorize, and was spoken of by Vidar himself as “largely an emotional matter, not a studied and carefully calculated thing.” Vidar preferred painting city scenes and people, rather than flowers and still lifes, and he was declared by one critic “the finest draftsman this town has had in recent years.”
• Frede Vidar began his art studies as a child
at the Royal Academy in his native Denmark, before moving to San Francisco
with his parents. There he entered the California School of Fine Arts,
and also studied at the Académie Julian and the École des Beaux Arts in
Paris, and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Berlin.
The Gallery proudly represents the Estate of Frede Vidar.
