‘... early Bay Area notables -- Elmer Bischoff, Joan Brown, William "Theophilius" Brown, Richard Diebenkorn, Nathan Oliveira and Paul Wonner ... If there is one real lesson that Bay Area Figuration has taught American painters over time, it is that nothing should stop a painter from playing the range between painterly figuration and painterly abstraction.’ (John Seed, Professor of Art and Art History, Mt. San Jacinto College; "Legacy in Continuum: Bay Area Figuration" ©, Inc.)
