Ramon Kelley (1939 - )

Ramon Kelley earned very early recognition as a young artist and has continued to grow professionally. Kelley credits Russian artist Nicolai Fechin as a major influence on his strong figural paintings. Subject matter of primary interest to Kelley is Mexican and Southwestern scenes and people.

Kelley lives in Denver, Colorado, but often goes on sketching trips around New Mexico and this is when he paints some of his finest Southwestern landscapes and Indian subjects. He is regarded as especially successful with portraits of young people and older people.

This painting of a young man is excellent testimony to his ability to portray strong portraits as gleaned from his inspiration of the art of Fechin.  The painting is over 30 years old and is in original excellent condition. It is framed in the original frame selected by the artist.
