About the Item

This artwork titled "Family Reunion" 1992 is an original color serigraph on heavy Coventry paper by noted American artist Donald (Don) Hatfield, b.1947. It is hand signed and numbered 121/300 in pencil by the artist. The image size is 24 x 39.5 inches, sheet size is 29.5 x 44.5 inches. It come with a certificate of authenticity from the publisher, Colville Publishing, Santa Monica, signed by the publisher and the artist, see picture #10. It is in excellent condition, has never been framed. About the artist: Donald Hatfield was born in 1947, and lives in Napa, California. He first became involved in art while a graduate student in divinity at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California, in the late 1960s and early '70s. Charles Cross, the portrait painter, had a studio nearby, and Hatfield would often go to him for critiques of his work. Eventually, over many games of chess and bottles of wine, a strong friendship developed between the two men. "He was like a surrogate father," Hatfield says of Cross. Hatfield spent considerable time in the studio, watching Cross work, asking questions about art, but when Cross invited him into an art class, he resisted. "I didn't even know the primary colors,". Hatfield's sole previous encounter with art happened in the eighth grade: a teacher held up a picture of a dog he'd drawn and announced to the class "This is NOT what I wanted." Finally Don studied with Cross for two years. "Charlie would always critique my work," Hatfield says. "Then I brought my first color work in-a pastel portrait-and he just started crying". Hatfield was moved by Cross's reaction, but he was still not able to convince himself of his calling, and he left his mentor. "Art just disappeared from my life", he recalls, "but I continually went to museums and looked at art books. Occasionally, I would do a pastel portrait, but it never occurred to me that painting would one day take center stage." Driven by the urgency to provide for his family, which by this time consisted of four children, he proceeded to spend the next seven~eight years doing anything he could just to get by. During these years, Hatfield worked as an evangelical minister, a carpenter, and in retail management. While attending a business conference in Chicago, he went to visit The Art Institute of Chicago and saw a painting by Giambattista Tiepolo (1696-1770) that so impressed him, it changed his life. "Charlie told me that I had to look at the legacy of oil painting to develop my own taste. John Singer Sargent loved Tiepolo," Hatfield, who admires Sargent, says. "He saw Tiepolo could edit the form and simplify it. So I'm in there looking at Tiepolo for the same reason Sargent does!". It was a time of intense personal crisis for Hatfield, the kind of time when one's senses are particularly open to the messages of the universe. Hatfield decided he was going to become a full time artist. Within two weeks (& in 1979), Hatfield, his wife, and four children, who were then living in the Midwest, packed up their belongings and moved to Santa Fe on the advice of the premier portrait painter Ray Kinstler. During their first year there, Hatfield realized he needed more training, so he and his family returned to his native California, where he took workshops with Dan McCaw and studied with Sergei Bongart for several years and where he decided to settle. "Sergei was a wonderful presence, a great teacher." Don diligently worked and perfected his style that we recognize today. His unique impressionistic style has brought him great acclaim in the art world and around the world. Don's paintings hang in many important private and corporate collections throughout the world.

Frame size: 22.5"H x 27"W Image size: 15"H x 20"W Gordon N. Cope (American, 1906-1999) was an educator and painter. Trained in Utah and France, he exhibited his landscape paintings and portraits in the United States and Europe, and he believed music was related to painting. Cope was born on May 14, 1906, in Salt Lake City. He was trained by Utahn artists LeConte Stewart and Lawrence Squires, and at the Académie Julian in Paris, France in 1928. He also studied singing at the Opéra-Comique. Cope taught art at Latter-day Saints University, and he served as the chair of its Department of Art in 1930–1931. He taught at the Mountain School of Art from 1932 to 1938, and he was the director of the Art Barn School in Salt Lake City in 1939–1941. Cope painted Utahn landscapes as well as a portrait of Henry H. Blood, who served as the seventh governor of Utah from 1933 to 1941. Cope exhibited his work in the United States and Europe. According to the Deseret News, Cope "felt that music and painting are closely interrelated, and that the study of one form may be used to complement the appreciation and understanding of the other." Cope died on June 10, 1999, in San Francisco, California. Gordon Nicholson Cope studied with well-known Utah artists A.B. Wright and LeConte Stewart, and became recognized as a major Utah artist of the Great Depression. Cope was born in Salt Lake City in 1906 and spent much of his life in Utah. Cope gained much of his artistic training from diverse environments and influences. Following his training with the previously mentioned artists, Cope spent the next year, 1924, working with Lawrence Squires in Arizona. To expand his knowledge and training, Cope traveled to Europe, where he studied the "old masters" such as Da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Raphael. From 1924 to 1928, Cope studied in England, France, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, and worked for a year at the Acadamie Julian, where many early Utah artists...
