A charcoal drawing by Joseph Knowles, Jr. This print, done on fine watercolor paper, comes from a limited edition. It is set off in a hand-treated walnut wood frame with a gold fillet.
Born in Santa Barbara, Joseph Knowles, Jr. is the son of two artists. After studying architecture at Stanford, in the late 1960s he entered the US Army and served in Vietnam. In the 1980s, Knowles left architecture to focus on his own art, which ranges from abstract to representational yet is always grounded in his interest in aesthetic effects. Knowles’s work has been featured in solo and group shows in Santa Barbara, New York, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. An enrolled member of the Cherokee Nation, he has focused in recent years on work that relates to his heritage. Knowles lives on a small horse ranch and vineyard in Santa Ynez, CA.
