“The West of today has no more expressive painter than Ross Stefan, an artist who truly understands the land and people of the southwest country . . .” stated Arizona Highways in its pictorial tribute to the popular western artist. Critics and collectors nationwide concur—Ross Stefan, through his unique impresionistic style and both intrinsic and cultivated knowledge of his subject, renders the contemporary Southwest on canvas with vibrancy and refreshing perspective.
“This comprehensive, expanded volume on Stefan and his work contains forty full-color reproductions of oils along with numerous black-and-white drawings, a panorama of the Southwest and a tribute to a fine painter. There are impressions of Navajo country, southern Arizona, Indian pueblos, ranches . . . all as they exist today and each speaking the traditions which have become rooted in the land they depict.”
