Heinie Hartwig in the News: (see bio attached.)

An article in Architectural Digest mentioned Hartwig’s paintings in one home’s collection. And, since an unusual conversation on television with one celebrity proposing to give one of Hartwig’s painting to another celebrity. (giving her “a little Heinie”.) Heinie Hartwig’s already popular art work has grown in demand. This renown had been building over the past few years as his work grew even more popular. Hartwig himself has slowed a bit, taking more time with his paintings, but also other things. He also got tired of painting small paintings which he said were as time consuming as some of the medium size ones, but didn’t get the same price. To rectify this issue for himself he doubled the price of the three smallest painting sizes. While this has not diminished the demand for his smaller paintings at least he is being paid for the time they take. All these factors have added up to a great demand for his work and fewer paintings to meet the demand. This show represents the largest single collection of Hartwig’s paintings currently available.

Highlights of This Show: (See attached photographs.)
We planned this show last year. As a result Hartwig has had a chance to give time and thought to the art in this show. One of the showpiece paintings is a large and dramatic view of Yosemite Valley. Similarly the remainder of the paintings in the show have been created to demonstrate the range of this experienced artist. The paintings in the show will include a variety of sizes and prices. A full color catalog of the paintings in show will be available in early September.

Heinie Hartwig
Pick up an International Price Guide to Art and you will find Heinie Hartwig's name. He lives a quiet, secluded life in the Sierra Foothills where folks have little knowledge of their famous artist neighbor. Even in the art world few people know him, as he rarely attends shows or receptions and markets his artwork through a small number of agents. Hartwig taught himself to paint by studying the "Old Masters." He was first attracted by the charm and romance of classic art and particularly to those artists who attempted to capture the poignancy of the past. He has managed to capture the light, color and style of those great old artists. Though most of his work has a western theme, Hartwig is a versatile painter and a significant portion of his paintings are landscapes and still life. Heinie Hartwig's work has been compared to Albert Bierstadt and John Constable for its romanticism, European feel, and composition. While we always have a good sample of his Indian images for which he is well known, the majority of our presentation both in number and in force are the landscapes.
