I have been a fan of Richard Jerzy's works for many years, and have had a number of his wonderful works. His portraits are, in my mind, his "trademark" genre, his signature works, were figures and I have bought them almost every time they have been within my grasp!
Some works you may read have gone unsold at auction, but, frankly, I have been dubious of their authenticity and, so many times, they are scenes and still lives rather than people. His people are usually portraits of those he had known in his life.
Richard Jerzy was a well-known watercolor artist in the Detroit, Michigan area. His work is well-collected not only in Michigan, but throughout the U. S. and world-wide.
"He was probably the most promising, successful, exciting artist in the state of Michigan," said Miriam Parel, a fellow artist and friend for more than 30 years. "(We had) the most unique friendship. I will probably never replace it again in my life."
He grew up on Detroit's east side and became a painting and art professor at Center of Creative Studies, and was well known for his own art work, ever increasing in number and scope of admirers. He was a professor for about 30 years.
