Amazing young talent. His ability to capture the essence of the subject and his realism would have pleased and impressed Julian Ritter.

We have several new additions planned for 2012 including new content and new features at the JulianRitterCentral website. You can keep abreast of what's happening by circling +JulianRitterCentral including the wonderful portrait Julian painted in 1950 of Dobie Doc, an early character in the build-up of the Las Vegas Strip, which we entered for the #FigurativeArtFriday theme day. We also have new paintings from our members showing their Julian Ritter art.

Here’s what you missed over the past two weeks if you do not have +JulianRitterCentral in your circles.

We posted a series of quotes Julian made about his wife Hilde to commmorate her death on January 22, 1966. We also posted a portrait that Julian did of Hilde and some follow-on quotes dealing with the aftermath of her death.

On Friday, we posted the painting "Wulf" as our submission in the #FigurativeArtFriday theme day. The painting has an interesting story behind it which you can read on out Art Page.

It is also a good idea to remove +Julian Ritter from any circles after circling the Art Page.

Here’s what you missed this week if you do not have +JulianRitterCentral in your circles.


We are finished posting a progression of Julian Ritter’s clown paintings to examine his development in this genre. We posted a pair of paintings from 1972 titled “Leo” and “Jane”. We also posted “Clown” with nudes,” a rather lustful work commissioned by Julian patron, Steve Shoemaker. Finally, we posted two of Julian’s masterful clown compositions: “Clown Funeral” and ”Clowns,” the latter which might be Julian’s consummate clown painting.

We also started posting a series of quotes beginning yesterday and going through January 22 to commemorate the death of Julian’s wife, Hilde, on January 22, 1966

We are still posting a progression of Julian Ritter’s clown paintings to examine his development in this genre. We posted two of his "Clown with Showgirl" paintings from around 1962. We also posted a "Showgirl with Clown" which features a nude showgirl with the clown as supporting cast.

We are still getting back to our regular posting schedule after the holidays but we should be offering more content soon.

Julian Ritter paintings - Buyer alert


As the librarian for the JulianRitterCentral project., I have asked both of Julian's children to review the following works currently available on eBay and both concur that they are not the work of their father, Julian Ritter. Both cite problems with style, technique and several issues with the signature. His daughter's review was particularly incisive and since she is both an artist and the person most familiar with Julian's work, her opinion should carry great weight.

The items listed on eBay are:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/250954236807?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649#ht_500wt_1221
http://www.ebay.com/itm/290646604988?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649#ht_1143wt_1221

Please use caution when buying the work of Julian Ritter as there are several known forgeries and frauds. These two items appear to simply be a misunderstanding by the seller as to the provenance of the works being sold.

To compare these works with known legitimate clown paintings, please visit http://www.julianrittercentral.com/catalogues/category/image-gallery/clowns-gallery.htm

This is the final reminder so now is the time to take action.

We are now posting art exclusively on our Art Page. Please circle +JulianRitterCentral to continue seeing our posts on the Art Page.

It would be best if you remove +Julian Ritter from your circles to avoid confusion - you won't see anything not related to the Art Page if you remove +Julian Ritter from your circles and you won't be missing anything because you will be seeing our posts in the JulianRitterCentral stream anyway.

Hope to see you on the +JulianRitterCentral Art Page.
