Carl Bretzke
Painter Friend and Friends

2017

$5,500

About

A painting of painter, Ben Fenske, his muse, Beatrice, and his dog. Sitting in front of and underneath Fenske's 2009 painting, "The Break Up." The artist comforts the dog with a nice scratch to the neck with one hand, and holds a drink in his other. One leg bent, one leg outstretched, head tilted and eyes gazing toward the right, we wonder what is conflicting him. His muse, Beatrice, lays relaxed on a red chair, leaned back, legs over the chair's arm. Carl Bretzke is a representational painter who specializes in urban scenes and plein-air landscapes. Carl's work has been exhibited extensively in Minnesota and California, including the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Carl holds an MD degree from the University of Minnesota Medical School. His undergraduate degree is from the University of Colorado, where he also received a minor in Fine Art. Carl has also trained extensively under Plein Air Painters of America signature artist Joseph Paquet.
