Carl von Hassler (1887-1969)
written by Robert Parsons
Von Hassler was called "The Dean of Albuquerque Artists."
He said, "Nature is a great teacher. To be a truly good artist, one has to be first a naturalist.
Each area presents its own background and feeling. Arizona is quite different from New Mexico.
Our state is very different from Colorado—and so it goes.
Unless you get the feel of a place, your painting will lack strength and beauty."
Von Hassler said it's impossible "to elaborate on nature with success.
I want to place on canvas what I see in nature."
