SOLD Proud Past Bright Future signed, 1963 watercolor 13" x 22"
Richard Van Reyper
Richard Van Reyper attended the School of Associated Arts in St. Paul, Minnesota. Using concept art and illustration, he worked as a free-lance advertising artist from the late 1940s to 1960, when he decided to pursue fine art.
Van Reyper's first medium was watercolor and his art education continued with countless watercolor workshops until the late 1960s when he began to work in oil.
By 1998, oil was his only medium. His use of color, his strong composition and brushwork create images that captivate and hold the interest of the viewer.
Paintings by Van Reyper are owned by the Lake Superior Museum of Fine Art, Schroeder, Minnesota. Galleries in Park City, Utah; St. Paul, Minnesota; Tucson and Tubac represent him.
