"Moonlight on the Sea," by Charles Reiffel

Printer Friendly
Font Size Extra Large Font Size Large Font Size Default

Charles Reiffel had some notoriety painting seascapes like this one in his early years, as a lithographer in Buffalo, New York while living in the artist colony of Silvermine, Connecticut.  In 1921, he abandoned lithography for easel painting.  The effect of the Eastern marine painters, notably Winslow Homer, seemed to influence Reiffel throughout his life.

There are a number of Reiffel’s paintings throughout the County Administration Center.
