Title: The Paintings of Franz A. Bischoff (1864-1929) - A Retrospective Exhibition From March 27 Through April 19, 1980

Author(s): Jean Stern

"Bischoff has long been known and highly respected by students and collectors of early California art, not only for his colorful and dramatic paintings, which we celebrate in this exhibition and catalogue, but also for his superb ceramics." "The Bischoff painting collection, consisting of 135 works in oil, watercolor, mixed media and one unique painting produced in sealing wax, represents a good part of the total work of the artist." "In this vein, we have endeavored to produce a concise, yet thorough record of the artist and his paintings. We have attempted to reproduce as many of the works as feasible without limitations of space. Thus we offer this volume as a contribution to the study of American Art." Robert E. Petersen.
