San Francisco

Eleanor Dickinson, Kaffe Fasset

Pantechnicon Gallery

Dickinson exhibits a series of drawings and lithographs with a solitary painting. Her work appears to be conditioned by the idea that being a woman artist is of more significance than just being an artist. Her work is sentimental in both image and execution.

Kaffe Fassett has had a rigorous training in the drawing methods of various old masters and is superficially able to match their “Look.” He adopts a different style from the past for landscape, architecture, etc. He is thoroughly lost when he comes to the 20th century and attempts to draw a kitchen interior, since he has no criterion from the past to follow.
