(1927 - 1999)
Ross Stefan b. 1934 Wisconsin d. 1999 Tucson, Arizona He had his first one-man show at age 13.
In 1953 his family moved to Tucson, where he studied art at the University of Arizona and did some sketching for the Tucson newspaper.
He began painting full-time in 1955 in a studio and gallery he established in Tubac, AZ. Fame came to Ross Stefan in 1971, when his one-man show in New York City virtually sold out on opening night. From that point Stefan’s work was amongst the most coveted and best-collected in the state of Arizona, with major retrospectives of his work at the Phippen Museum, the Harmsen Collection, the Denver Art Museum, the Phoenix Art Museum and the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center.
His work evolved over time from realistic to impressionistic and pointillism. paraphrased from AskArt
