The Art of Stephen C. Datz

Archived Works

These images comprise a select group of what I consider to be my best works, presented in roughly descending chronological order, with my more recent works presented first and comprising a majority of the selections.

What I have chosen to present here are both larger studio works and small field studies, paintings in which I feel I fully achieved what I set out to do, and in which there is nothing I would change. In my experience, that is about as close to perfection as an artist can get.

These paintings reside in private collections around the world.
