BOSTON PAINTER JOHN C. TERELAK (b.1942) IS THE
PREEMINENT LIVING AMERICAN IMPRSSIONIST!
Remember the only way to understand the power of a
masterpiece is to own it!
Curator's Comment: At almost eighty, John Charles Terelak is
America's leading pure impressionist. Just listen to Terelak and you will
understand why we, along with major collectors, corporate collectors and
major museums know him as the best living impressionist we have. His work
is the real thing, not an impressionism copying the historic past, but
impressionism as we know it, illuminating genuine present day landscape.  
"I've been painting for over twenty-five years, and after all that time, I still
love to paint. I get enormous pleasure just from the smell of paint and
turpentine, from the actual physical process of mixing paints and applying them
to the canvas. I'm a very intense painter, and I'm certainly a 'messy' painter, but
at the same time I'm also very patient and painstaking. I take a long time with
my paintings, working and reworking them, adding layer after layer of paint,
and glazing the surface again and again. I want the actual surface of the canvas
to have a rich patina, a depth and texture that is beautiful in its own right, quite
independent of the images and colors involved. Actually, whether I'm painting
Monet's garden at three in the afternoon, or Times Square at three in the
morning, the real content of my work is color and light. What I'm really doing
is playing off one color against another, creating color harmonies that evoke
different moods and feelings. I've been called an American traditionalist and
impressionist, but those are just labels. In fact, the only thing that really matters
is the work itself, and the feelings the work produces." We are certain that
Winter Apples is his very best work of all. We missed the chance to own it six
years ago, and when it suddenly reappeared, we didn't hesitate.
