MICHAEL P. STEHR Fine Art Oil Paintings
Michael has been painting landscapes and architectural portraits for several years and he has received much recognition for his accomplishments as an artist. Michael’s art is heavily influenced by his love for the history of art.  While earning a degree in Art History from Stanford in 1991, Michael developed an appreciation for a wide range of artistic styles and periods.  He now draws on the work of many of these heroes of the arts while embarking on his own creative process. Being predominantly self taught, Michael considers these artists of the past as his greatest teachers.

Michaels greatest love is the work of Camille Corot-french painter of the early to mid 1800’s-said to be the forefather of Impressionism.  When working on his landscapes, Michael is also inspired by several early California painters such as Thomas Hill and Edgar Payne. While these artists provide inspiration, Michael always finishes his pictures in a manner that is distinctly his own style.

Many of his original oil paintings seen on this site are available for purchase, as well as fine art reproductions. All of his latest work can be seein in the PORTFOLIO. Please contact him for more information.
