Rolf Stecher Watercolor Painting of Window Garden
I found this watercolor painting today at a Goodwill for $4. It is signed R. Stecher, but there is a business card taped to the back with the artists full name Rolf Stecher. It has his address being in St. Catherine Ontario Canada. The painting is about 6″ x 8.5″ and was nicely matted and framed. I did a search on the artist and found a newspaper article. He’s about 87 years old now. He attended The Art School in Erfurt, Germany, in 1943 and the Art and Trade School in Zurich, Switzerland, from 1953 to 1955. He moved to Montreal in 1955 and became a baker. He retired in about 1982 and moved to St. Catharines. He became a member of the Parkway Artist Guild at the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens and the St. Catharines Art Association. He teaches watercolor painting at the Residence des Aines in St. Catharines.
