One of the most original artists of the twentieth century was Milwaukee’s Joseph Friebert. In the first instance, his paintings are very personal, yet at the same time deeply psychological, imbued with introspection and compassion for his subjects. Whether it was a self-portrait, a still life or a city scene or landscape, Friebert’s paintings possess a sense of quiet melancholy that reflect his concern and awareness of what might be called “the human condition.”
