Robert Schwartz, Master of Miniature
The San Jose Museum of Art in California publishes wonderful art books. One of my favorite recent books is "Dream Games, The Art of Robert Schwartz". Schwartz was a very unique California painter who died at the youthful age of 53 in the year 2000. His gouache paintings were often no bigger than 8 inches square, but all were packed with tiny details, surreal narratives and ambiguous emotion.
