Bethesda Fine Art


Anton Refregier (1905-1979) was a muralist, a printmaker, sculptor, and set designer. Active in the art world as a judge of mural and sculpture competitions, as a member of various art associations, and as an art educator, Refregier led a life marked by the contrast between capitalist Americas wealth and prosperity, and its simultaneous dearth of culture and spirituality. As a result of the unique situation America found itself in during the twentieth century, Refregier wrote in a pamphlet that, the profit system is not capable of providing the fullest cultural development of the people, a sentiment echoed in the artists struggle to create meaningful work in places normally not designated for art.
