Painter/printmaker Nathan Oliveira dies


Nathan Oliveira, a great painter and printmaker, has just died at the age of 81. My etching teacher introduced me to his work in the 1990s, and I always loved the way he combined figuration with abstraction. Click the following link to see some of his work:
