Red Landscape IV, 1960
Oil on Canvas
Wilbur Niewald's artistic vision has a great deal to do with Kansas City, Missouri. His early painting classes at the age of 10 were the beginning of what turned out to be a 56-year association with the Kansas City Art Institute where he taught for 46 years. Niewald refers to his early paintings from the 1960s as "abstractions of the landscape" utilizing color and large brushstrokes to create a sense of space.
Niewald has lived and worked in Kansas City, Missouri, for over 85 years.
