Project Description

David A Leffel

David A Leffel is not only recognized by his peers as a painters’ painter, he is considered by many to be no less than the artistic reincarnation of Rembrandt. In New York he became a revered instructor at the Art Students League where he shared his special understanding of painting with thousands of students from all over the world. Colleagues and collectors alike recognize Leffel as a modern master.

Leffel has written two books that have met world-wide acclaim for their ability to integrate his understanding of technical aspects of painting with his philosophy and humor—An Artist Teaches and Self-Portraits: A Visual Journey of Insight.
