Artist Bio:


Fred Reichman was a well-known artist and art instructor. He was born in 1925 in Bellingham, Washington and moved to San Francisco in 1934. After receiving his B.A. and M.A. from UC Berkley and living in Europe for two years on a UC Berkley Taussig fellowship, he taught at the University of California at Berkeley, the University of California at Davis, San Francisco Art Institute and the University of California extension in San Francisco. Critics praised his works for their "compositional tautness," and their frequent use of luminous whites and yellows. "The paintings of Fred Reichman are just plain magical," one critic wrote. Major galleries presented one-man shows of Mr. Reichman's works in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and Taos, N.M., as well as in Japan and Germany. His paintings are also in the permanent collections of many American museums, including San Francisco's Museum of Modern Art, and the UC Berkeley Art Museum.

He once described his style as a California painter this way: "There is a unique energy that exists on the Pacific Coast. It is different from our Eastern Seaboard, different from the art of Europe and the Orient -- yet it comes out of all these sources to create inspiration and fresh insights. The light and the land, the atmosphere that exists here, has its own particular ambience. I feel a part of this energy." He died in 2005.
