• Leo Putz - Women's Faces in Detail

    1 month ago - By Art Contrarian

    Leo Putz (1869-1940) was an Austrian painter who used interesting brushwork during one phase of his career - about 1903-1912. That involved distinct brushstrokes often from what appears to have been square-tipped brushes.
