San Francisco

Skaalegaard, Lebedeff, and Kidder

Winblad Gallery

This exhibition displays three quite different forms of academic painting. Hans Skaalegaard illustrates sailing vessels with a regard for detail such as one might expect from a model builder. Alexander Lebedeff uses a palette knife exclusively to paint his pictures of Russian sunsets and Brazilian swamps. All of his paintings have a violet cast and a soft impasto paint quality. Hilda Kidder is an English academician with a loose sketchy technique and a brown tonal color concept.
