[ translate ]

Louis Safer (American, 1913-2002). Oil on canvas painting titled "Yellowstone Landscape" depicting a sweeping view of the national park in a Cubist style. Signed and titled along the verso.

Provenance: Collection of Rev. Richard L. Hillstrom; Collection of Frank J. Indihar, M.D.; Private Minnesota Collection.

Safer moved to Minnesota in the mid-1950s to teach at the University of Minnesota as a professor of art. He was a disciple of synchronism, a style created by his mentor Professor Stanton Macdonald-Wright, which is similar to Cubism. This style was a form of abstraction characterized by using intervals between colors in what has been described as the visual equivalent of music.
