STEINMETZ is a quintessential contemporary artist; but what makes his art unique among current trends is his almost palpable connection to the Old Masters. In his works—comic or tragic, figurative or semi-abstract—he tackles the same timeless themes they did, but expresses them in an unmistakably modern language.
