Ross Stefan was born in 1934 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. His father, who worked in advertising, introduced him to art at a young age, and young Ross Stefan had his first one-man show at the age of 13. His first major influence was the noted Wisconsin illustrator Dan Muller, and visit to his studio marked a major developmental turning point in his life which guided Ross into the path of becoming an artist. Due to ill health, Ross Stefan and family moved to southern Arizona in 1953, where he became an art student at the University of Arizona. In his spare time, Stefan worked as an illustrator for the Tucson Daily Citizen, using a melding of his own self-taught style with that of his early muse, Norman Rockwell. This foray into paid work convinced Ross Stefan to quit his studies at the University and begin painting full-time in 1955 in a studio and gallery he established in Tubac. It was also in 1955 that Ross Stefan first traveled out into the desert to spend time with the Navajos, painting and drawing the people and landscapes of the untouched West. Fame came to Ross Stefan in 1971, when his one-man show in New York City virtually sold out on opening night. From that point onward, Stefans work was amongst the most coveted and best-collected in the state of Arizona. Ross Stefans work is often described as Southwestern Impressionist that takes into account heightened color palette without considering the proportional accuracy and spatial realism of his landscapes, figures and architectural depictions. Ross Stefan’s scenes of pueblo life and the southern Arizona landscape are still archetypes of western art. This artwork from early in his career will certainly enhance any collection from such a fine artist.
