Reflections of Nature, Paintings by Joseph Raffael,  By Donald Kuspit and Amei Wallach with a “Diary of a Painting” and an “Autobiographical Chronology” by the artist.

“Long one of contemporary art’s most highly regarded painters, Raffael
transforms intense observations of nature into color-drenched, deeply felt
works of art. At a time when beauty is much out of favor, Joseph Raffael has taken what some would consider the highly radical step of daring to paint beautiful pictures.”
