Russell Cheney’s paintings remain as fresh and undated today as when he painted them in the nineteen-tens, twenties, thirties, and forties. From still lifes, to portraits, to landscapes, he painted what pleased him about life, giving his paintings integrity and unity as a body of work.
This website is the evolving catalog raisonné of the painter’s work and an introduction to his 1,150 known works, 75 exhibitions and a fascinating life story. Our purpose is to revive interest in this masterly artist. You can help. Submissions of unlocated paintings, articles, and information are welcome. Contact us
