American Art

Jeff Legg

American (b.1959)


Jeff C. Legg’s artistic interests developed in childhood and by age 13, he was apprentice to a well known regional artist and college art professor Darral Dishman. This nearly four years of mentoring under Mr. Dishman laid the foundation for his drawing and painting skills which led him to study at the Atelier Lack in Minneapolis and the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. The great masters, Chardin, Rembrandt, and more contemporarily the Wyeths are among his artistic influences. It is this nod to the legacy of the old masters combined with his inspired contemporary use of chiaroscuro and subject matter that engage fellow artists and collectors world wide.
