About

A vibrant painting of two siblings by California artist Ralph Edward Joosten (American, 1928-2009). Signed "Ralph Joosten" in the lower right corner. Presented in a simple rustic wood frame. Image size: 30"H x 36"W Mr. Joosten was an accomplished artist and photographer who lived in Santa Cruz, California for many years. He studied painting at the California School of Fine Art and was one of the second year students to take the new courses in photography designed and originated by Ansel Adams with Minor White as the teacher. He earned a BFA and teaching credential from the California College of Arts and Crafts and a master's degree in painting from New York University. He studied at Winona School of Photography, 1950-1954. He spent his early years in San Francisco, where he held a one-man photography exhibit at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in 1957. He traveled extensively, taking trips to Yosemite and Carmel with Ansel Adams and John Weston and learning wood block printing and Japanese brush painting in the Kyoto Gardens in Japan. His photographs are considered fine examples of the black and white photographs of the period. Mr. Joosten taught at schools on the Peninsula and adult education classes in Sacramento and Santa Cruz.
