Victor Denfrey Steele 1937-2008
Victor Denfrey Steele's first career was as a Marine Fighter Pilot. After retiring from the Marine Corps he began his second career in art. Vic studied for four years in Atlanta with the Chatovs - Roman, Constantin, and finally Roman's son Marc. Roman and Constantin, now deceased, were Russian immigrants "of the old school."Vic's work is heavily influenced by the Chatovs but he evolved a slightly more impressionistic style. His figures, landscapes, and still life paintings are realistic in shape, form, and value, although the intensity of his colors may be exaggerated or muted to suit his purpose. Sadly, Victor passed away in early April, 2008, and is greatly missed by his family, but his legacy continues on. His blog is dedicated to him and updated by his artist daughter, Tina Steele Lindsey.
