About

Wonderful figurative abstract by William (Bill) Wheeler (American, b-1940). Unframed. Signed "Wheeler" and dated "3-21-63" lower right. Image size, 11.25"H x 8.25"W. William Wheeler is a celebrated painter who has lived, painted and exhibited in the San Francisco Bay Are for over twenty years. Wheeler studied at Yale University with Joseph Albers and then at The San Francisco Art Institute with Richard Diebenkorn and Nathan Olivera. He is a member of the "Sonoma Four" group of open air painters. A conservationist at heart, Wheeler is a man who knows and deeply respects the land. Wheeler's paintings have been described by John FitzGibbon as "aiming at the cosmic, the transcendental... his spritzy, freewheeling brushwork, his lyrical colorism, his painterliness all add up to one self-definition: I am a free man and freedom is tied intrinsically to the lndscape."
